MoDOT’s Big Truck Night Scheduled for May 15

May 9, 2014 

Hundreds of children turn out each year to get a close up look at MoDOT’s big equipment that’s used every day to fix the roads, stripe them and clear snow.

This year’s free Big Truck Night, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. May 15 at the MoDOT offices, 600 NE Colbern Road, Lee’s Summit, offers that much and more. Attendees will see demonstrations by the Lee’s Summit Police Bomb Squad and K-9 Unit, MoDOT’s remote mower, a dunk tank, the seat belt convincer, and equipment from the Lee’s Summit Fire Department, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department, the D.A.R.E. car and more. MoDOT will display the Salty Dog brine tanker, a tandem dump with TowPLow, litter picker with tractor, sweeper, auger truck, sign boom truck and Motorist Assist truck.

Concessions will be available, along with activities for young children and live music.
