MoDOT plans to hire 81 for winter jobs

Posted: Updated:

Despite the current heat, MoDOT is preparing for the winter months ahead by hiring new employees.

MoDOT officials said plan to hire 81 new employees to help with snow plowing and other jobs in the department.

The department is looking to fill both temporary and full time positions.

"We're looking at hiring 26 positions full times in St. Louis County and there are 55 available throughout the district. Those positions throughout the district are temporary, but can turn into full time jobs," said District Maintenance Engineer Mark Croarkin.

Officials said they have already ordered salt for the roads and begun repairs on snow plows to ensure they are prepared for the first winter storm.
