Balancing road salt use in the winter
Roads and French fries…nothing in common, right? Turns out, when you add too much salt to either, they’re not so good anymore.
It’s a balancing act county road agencies face every winter, with safety concerns, contractual requirements and budgetary constraints.
There are several ways road agencies are more effective than ever when treating winter roads:
- Pretreating with brine
- Calibrating vehicles
- Utilizing innovative technology
- Monitoring timing and weather conditions

County road agencies always have the motoring public in mind. It’s why they’re constantly coming up with new ways to be good stewards of the environment and the roads.
