We still have a couple of months before the flakes start flying here in Western New York but it's never too early to start planning for the upcoming winter.

The New York State's Department of Transportation is now hiring hundreds of workers before the winter season.

The job will be keeping the roads clear of ice and snow.

Even though 500 jobs are open according to WIVB, 60 positions will be available here in Western New York.

To apply, visit the New York DOT website.

The colder weather is coming soon enough!
