The road is cleared!

Recently the Dalton was drifted shut near Slope Mountain.  This video starts right after 2 blades (graters) clear the road and one parks in front of Jack.  If it weren’t for the plowed path, you can’t really tell where the road is unless you watch the delineaters, those reflective markers on each edge.

    I know the video was accelerated but how fast do they actually go on these roads?

      Hi Judith. Jack’s truck is governed at 55 miles an hour. 50 is the speed limit. There might be moments when he goes faster than that when going downhill, but basically the fastest he goes is 55. I’ll talk to him about this some more and include a more detailed answer in one of the next posts. 🙂
