Harsh Winter Costs Indiana Highway Agency $57 Million

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ The Indiana Department of Transportation says the harsh winter has cost the agency an estimated $57 million.
Agency spokesman Will Wingfield told WIBC-FM on Thursday the estimate would be a record. It's also about 67 percent more than about $34 million the agency spent each of the previous five years. 
Wingfield says INDOT has used 437,000 tons of salt, more than 5 million gallons of salt brine and its trucks logged nearly 8.8 million miles. That's equal to about 18 round trips to the moon.
