November 5th, MoDOT will hold a statewide drill to test its preparedness for winter. A simulated snowstorm will be forecast for the entire state, and all 3,500 employees will operate their roles during the drill. Road crews will be out on their assigned snow plow and salting roads, so more MoDOT truck than normal will be on the roads. MoDOT will also require employees to complete an annual winter skills training course. The simulated storm day November 5th will take about six hours.
