Following a string a major winter storms, the state’s budget for snow cleanup and removal is running ahead of where it normally would be this time of year.

Department of Transportation Spokesman Bill Boynton says the total cost of last week’s blizzard came in at $2 million.

“Well certainly, it’s been a challenging last week or so with three major events,” Boynton said Monday. “We’ve spent $26 million going into today out of a $45 million budget, but we’ll keep going out there for as long as it takes.”
