A MnDOT snow plow clears snow on northbound Hwy. 52 south of Rochester, Minn. in December 2018.

Last winter was long and harsh, and the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) said Wednesday it was pretty expensive, too.

In one of the most severe winters in the past decade, MnDOT spent $133 million to clear roads throughout the state, an increase of 7% over the previous year. With a population of about 5.6 million, that cost Minnesotans about $23.75 each.
