worked approximately 1,000-man hours in that time span not including the hours worked by managers, fuelers and mechanics,” said Sweeney. The largest challenges vendors like Sweeney faced included getting operators plugged into shifts to allow for 24-hour, round-the-clock service to which private vendors are not accustomed. “We kept the loaders out moving on the roads. Each new crew of operators reported to our shop, we drove those operators to the pay loaders to swap out with the previous shift and then drove that off-duty crew back to our shop. We had staff to cycle to every loader to deliver fuel and grease every eight hours,” he said. “Each loader had three eight-hour shifts; there- Private vendor loaders and dump trucks spent endless hours clearing in hard-hit ares of New England.

Hundreds, if not thousands, of contractors were temporarily hired by state DOTs and municipalities as private vendors in the states of Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, among other New England states, to dig out from the worst single snowstorm to hit the area in 40 years.

plow trucks to the specified routes that the local plow truck drivers knew very well. Plow truck drivers would then direct the loaders under their supervision. They were in constant communication with the Hamden Public Works main office to monitor progress, setbacks and challenges. “Personally, I found this to be a great solution to the problems the town was facing at that point. Hamden has some great representation in Public Works, employees such as Mike Siciliano, David Lockery and Joe Callella. These three supervisors, as well as the countless town-employed drivers and operators, really made a Herculean effort and rose to the challenges in front of them, during some extremely difficult and stressful moments,” said Sweeney. Little Rhody, Big Storm Rhode Island employed 400 private vendors during Nemo, joining 150 state employees working the roads and highways. The state used 100 DOT plow trucks, five loaders and other vehicles at 21 snow stockpile sites that were opened to accommodate the untold tons of cleared snow. The stockpiles were located in the state’s seven maintenance districts — Northwest, Providence, Bristol, Newport, Kent, Washington North and Washington South. “There were other vendors [hired], also,” said Heidi Gudmunson of the RIDOT Communications division. “We had a heavy tow plan in place, meaning four tractor trailersized tow trucks [otherwise known as heavy wreckers] were positioned around the state readily available to help, as needed. We also had tree trimming vendors mobilized throughout the storm, to clear the way for plows etc., as necessary. “The state DOT also had four front-end loaders to help dig out emergency shelters, park and ride [bus stops], highway drifts, etc.,” added Gudmunson. see NEMO page 11

RIDOT Deploys 3,300 Tons of Sand, 15,000 Tons of Salt NEMO from page 4

Though the smallest state in the nation, RIDOT deployed some 3,300 tons (2,994 t) of sand, along with 15,000 tons (13,608 t) of salt on the approximately 1,100 linear mi. (1,770 km) or 3,300 lane mi. (5,310 km) of highways that were maintained during Nemo. The traffic-free roads, mandated by Gov. Lincoln Chaffee, made the difference. “The highway restrictions imposed by the Governor helped, as it enabled our plows get around during the height of the storm without the obstacles of passenger vehicles and trucks,” Gudmunson said. “Other technologies, such as the salt brine we used, enabled us to keep the roads cleared faster, as we didn’t have snow and ice bonding to the highways. In addition, having access to the larger equipment certainly helped as this was an extremely powerful storm, with huge amounts of snow that needed to be moved in order to keep our highways clear.” When asked for a list of ven-

dors, or any that deserved special mention, RIDOT instead praised the collective. “Certainly being able to supplement the RIDOT crews with private vendors was an important part of our overall success in this storm. As you can imagine, with such a large group of vendors we don’t want to leave anyone out. They all pitched in and responded to the call when needed,” said Joseph Baker, administrator of highways and bridges at RIDOT. “The most important thing I can tell you, however, is that the pride and hard work of our maintenance employees should be commended,” added Gudmunson. “They gave it their all to keep up with the storm and keep us safe. They are truly unsung heroes.” In Massachusetts the Call Went Out In Massachusetts, when a blizzard or major storm hits, a call goes out for assistance from MassDOT. “Typically,” said Michael Verseckes, head of MassDOT’s

Hydraulic Cranes 6-365 Ton

communications office, “Private contractors have approximately an hour and 15 minutes to respond. Most respond within a much shorter timeframe than that.” “Between 10 p.m. on Feb. 8 and 4 a.m. on Feb. 9, MassDOT had approximately 3,625 pieces of equipment deployed around the state. MassDOT has roughly 400 pieces of equipment in-house, and access to 4,000 pieces of hired equipment,” Verseckes added. Statewide, MassDOT is responsible for more than 3,000 mi. (4,828 km) of roadway, translating into 15,200 lane mi. (24,462 km). “This winter, there have been 12 other storms — most outside of the Boston area — that have required significant amounts of coordination and effort to clear roads,” said Verseckes. “Our snow fighting efforts rely heavily on effective communications, and during storms that is managed in our Highway Operations Center (HOC) in South Boston.” HOC staff has access to more than 850 roadway and security

cameras to detect and monitor traffic conditions and crashes. In instances of heavy traffic congestion or impending weather, the HOC can program approximately 400 message boards around the Commonwealth to inform or warn drivers of hazards that are specific to one region or is applicable statewide. “A travel ban was implemented that was an effective means to drive home the point that the storm of Feb. 8 and 9 was serious. It also helped remind folks that we were going to have a continuous aroundthe-clock effort to keep up with the accumulation, which would be improved by having the roads clear of most other vehicular traffic,” said Verseckes. “Subsequent to Feb. 8, we had crews out around the state continuing to clear road shoulders and breakdown lanes, and in some cases, going over the right travel lanes where needed. We had personnel addressing areas where the snow melt [caused by subsequent rain] may have turned to ice

overnight — with a particular focus on our on-and-off-ramps,” said Verseckes. The travel ban in both Massachusetts and Rhode Island excluded public safety vehicles and workers, including contract personnel, public works vehicles, contracted vendor vehicles, government officials, utility company vehicles, health care workers and the news media. Early Sign Ups for Vendors In Rhode Island and some other states, vendors get extra bonuses for so-called “green” equipment and accessories which improve state fuel costs. They also get an early sign-up bonus, if their equipment completes the state registration process by Oct. 26 in preparation for winter storms. Rhode Island also is innovative in another way, using special road salt brine that has greatly improved how state roads are treated both before and after snowstorms. This brine, which is much see NEMO page 14

stronger that traditional sand or salt mixtures, has allowed the budget-strapped state to cut back on spreading sand to reduce snow and ice on its 1,100 mi. of roads. During Nemo, and other potent storms, the salt brine was applied two days before the storm, leaving a chalky coat that bonds with the roadway after the water evaporates. Sand reduction also means less clogging of storm drains and less sediment in rivers and streams. It is only a pre-treatment. Traditional salt and sand are still applied in storms. Such innovations speak to the dilemmas of time and cost facing municipalities when a storm like Nemo shuts them down with no power or travel for days. “Our challenges [plowing roads] were small compared to that of the leaders of the town of Hamden as well as many other municipalities who had similar challenges,” said Sweeney. “It was eye opening to spend some time observing the challenges from the inside of this response effort and, at the same time, listening to a percentage of the public criticizing the efforts of these people trying to help them.

“Some of these people criticized through television and newspaper and websites; some people griped to all that would listen in the local coffee shops and some people took their frustrations out on the actual equipment operators as they cleared snow in front of their homes,” he added. “As a private contractor, I am not accustomed to this uneducated and uninformed criticism. It was not all negative and I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge a very large percentage of wonderful residents who were quite positive along the routes and were quick to provide our operators with food, a hot cup of coffee and a kind word or a thank you along the way.” Sweeney added, “As a lifelong resident of the town of Hamden, I would like to say it was a pleasure to work with this group, and congratulations to all involved, from the Mayor, to the Public Works Department to the fire department to the police department on getting the cleanup completed. Great job to all.” (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.) CEG
