The New York State Department of Transportation is looking to fill more than 600 open positions.

NewsChannel 13 spoke to the regional director, who says they don’t want to be in a position where they don’t have enough plow drivers when winter weather makes the roads treacherous.

Across the state’s different regions, the DOT is hiring fleet technicians and highway maintenance workers for both permanent and seasonal roles.
