CONCORD- As the snow continues to fall the cost for snow clean-up is on the rise. We're barely half-way through winter and as of Friday, the state had dipped into more than 60 percent of the 45 million dollar snow budget.
Tuesday's blizzard dumped enough snow for a week's worth of work, and more snow Monday has more eyes on the budget.
The groundhog's prediction is on display at the State Department of Transportation, where Bill Boynton says their crews have worked long hours this past week.
"We're hoping for some lulls along the way where we can do some catch up," Boynton said.
Clean up for an event like Monday's can cost between 75 and 85 thousand dollars an hour. Costs can build up fast when dealing with equipment, gas, salt, sand and manpower.
Governor Maggie Hassan says they will make sure the money is there to keep everyone safe.
"All in all, we're keeping an eye on it. We try to make sure we're as efficient with these dollars as we can be. But we want everyone to be safe," Hassan said.
