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 (http://bit.ly/1k4xGcu ) 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.
