NH running over winter maintenance budget

Posted: Updated:
CONCORD, N.H. -

New Hampshire says it's running over budget this year for snow removal.

The state's transportation department says it had only expected to spend $39 million on winter maintenance, but instead they estimate they've spent about $45 million.

Officials say they've already spent $3 million more on salt than they had planned.

The state is also running short on overtime and rental equipment funds, so it may need to dip into the highway fund, which goes toward bridge and road maintenance.
