Clare County Road Commission engineer-manager Deepak Gupta said on Wednesday the commission is basically wrapped up on is 2017 projects with some minor things on which to finish up.

The focus now its to get ready for snow removal.

“We need to have a reasonable amount of snow that our trucks can blade,” Gupta said. “We’ll be loaded with the salt. Our salt barn is full. We’re ready for winter. We have our salters on our trucks. All our tracks have blades. We’ll be ready for winter anytime it wants to come.”

The last two winters have been light.

“We decided to stock pile and load up our salt barn to full capacity in case we have a bad winter,” Gupta said. “If not, we save the salt for next year. It’s not a commodity that goes bad. We’re in good shape.”
