COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio Department of Transportation says it's looking for other ways to get more road salt after an effort to get more for communities running short drew no bids from salt suppliers.
The department wanted to buy 150,000 tons of salt for communities and then have them to return the salt after they replenish their supplies.
But no salt companies bid in the 10-day window that ended Friday.
The department now says it is considering alternatives to get salt into the state.
Ohio has used more than 880,000 tons of salt since the start of this unusually cold and snowy winter. That doesn't include the salt used by local governments on local roads.
