The 2011-12 winter season was memorable for warmer temperatures and less snow, but Rhode Island experienced plowable snow earlier than ever last season and the long-range forecast calls for an above-average amout of snow this coming winter. RIDOT is again seeking interested suppliers to assist with snow and ice control services along the 3,300 lane miles of State highways in Rhode Island.
The 2012-2013 winter season rates have been updated to include several new pieces of equipment and accessories. The Department is working to make more efficient use of salt and sand to reduce overall winter operations costs and again is offering a 20 percent green equipment incentive. Please download the vendor application package to learn more.
Additionally, the Department will be instituting an 18 percent fuel adjustment and a 10 percent early sign up incentive for those registering by October 26. A 5 percent early sign-up incentive is available through November 16.
The 2012-2013 registration package and application is also available at all RIDOT Maintenance Facilities and Headquarters. Please contact (401) 734-4832 with any questions regarding this registration process.
Be prepared for safe travel each winter. See RIDOT's Winter Driving Tips page.
