Project Summary
In the current economic climate, it is imperative to maximize efficiency while minimizing costs. As a result, ODOT is evaluating new methods to reduce expenditures in their winter maintenance budget. One such evaluation is of the Viking-Cives TowPlow, a trailer unit towed behind a standard truck that is capable of plowing and applying material over two lanes in a single pass. A comprehensive evaluation of the TowPlow was conducted to determine the feasibility for implementation, which includes the impact on level of service (LOS) and utilization of the equipment.
