Shelby County Road Supervisor Carl Henry was one of the few road crews that didn’t worry about running out of salt this year.
Because of excess storage space, something Henry fought for for just this reason, he added 1,500 tons of salt to the roughly 2,000 tons he already had.
That paid off, as Henry was able to even sell some to Shelbyville when they ran low. To date, his crews have used 2,300 to 2,500 tons of salt, including about 75 tons on Monday.
Now he’s looking at stocking up again, incase another epic winter follows this one.
