A DelDOT Maintenance & Operations team won first place in the National Snowplow Roadeo held in Loveland, Colorado.

Chris King, assistant supervisor for Canal District's Area 10; and Charles Dietz, an equipment operator III for North District's Area 14, competed in the 10-wheel snowplow roadeo. Also competing in the national roadeo this year were Robert Cubbage, an equipment operator IV for Central District's Area 21; and Brian Downward, an equipment operator for Canal District's Area 22.

Jason Beaston and Brian Downward took third place in the single axle competition in 2017, and Jason Chadick and Alan Jefferson took first place honors in the tandem axle competition in 2007.

"I am so proud of our employees who represented DelDOT at this year's competition and performed so well," said Secretary of Transportation Jennifer Cohan. "Our operators do a fantastic job and it's great to see them bring home a first-place finish."
