Staff Shortages Could Impact KDOT Winter Operations


The Kansas Department of Transportation is facing a shortage of equipment operators heading into winter.


KDOT has dealt with reduced staffing in the past. However, the shortages are greater this year. The agency has reported it is about 30% short of snowplow operators needed to be fully staffed across the state.


To help alleviate the shortage, KDOT will deploy all current employees who have a Commercial Driver's License to plow snow, as well as hire temporary, seasonal employees. Those interested in working should apply at the state's employment website, at KDOT will assist those selected in receiving their CDL, including paying for training.
