Storm Cleanup Starting To Prove Costly

Posted January 8, 2002 11:30 a.m. EST

— Storm cleanup is proving to be costly. The DOT estimates it has spent about $7.5 million so far.

In Wake County, part of that money has put 60 truck drivers on local roads. Forty snow removal workers with 20 trucks drove in from Asheville to help out. Twenty-two drivers came in from Statesville.

In addition, 28 private motor graters were contracted for the clean-up on state-maintained roads.
