ANCHORAGE- The Department of Transportation is always seeking new ways to keep up on winter maintenance and to reduce costs. 

The DOT is currently looking to purchase a tow plow, a specially designed plow to cover two lanes, rather than one. Extending out more than 26 feet, it also includes a smooting mechanism. 

This type of tow plow has already been introduced to roads in the Soldotna area, and the DOT is hoping to acquire one for Anchorage as well.
