CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s Department of Transportation has spent about $26 million on winter maintenance operations so far this season, including this week’s big snowstorm.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1yJNKkR) that means the department has used about 61 percent of its $42 million budget.

DOT spokesman Bill Boynton said winter storms cost about $75,000 to $80,000 per hour, taking care of hired trucks salt, equipment, personnel, overtime, and other items.
