Snow removal equipment on display in Des Moines

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Snow removal equipment has been put on display in downtown Des Moines.

Officials say the annual display event on Saturday at the Court Avenue Bridge will help explain the city’s strategies and plans for snow removal this winter.

Visitors will see snowplow equipment that includes single- and tandem-axle truck plows with “wing” attachments and motor graders, as well as trucks with blades and end loaders.

Entries from an annual snowplow painting contest also will be on display. Attendees will help select winners among the school children who painted the 12 snowplows.
