REMINDER - MEDIA ADVISORY: Idaho Transportation Department hosts media event to promote safety around snow plows

SHOSHONE--With the approach of winter weather and challenging driving conditions on Idaho’s highways, the Idaho Transportation Department is hosting a media event to encourage safe driving around snow plows.

The event will be held today, Thursday, Dec. 6 at 216 South Date Street in Shoshone from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.

A snow plow operator will be available to talk to reporters about the best way to stay safe when encountering the plows, and a plow will be on site to serve as a backdrop.

Each year, the transportation department organizes a winter safety campaign that offers a variety of information and tips on being prepared for winter conditions. This year the campaign is called “Idaho Ready.”

Additional information can be found at: itd.idaho.gov/road-mtce.

The Idaho Transportation Department is responsible for all highways on the State Highway System – interstates, state highways and U.S. routes. All other roads are under the jurisdiction of the local, city or county entity.
