Street crews apply salt brine to bare roadways before a storm arrives. The application of brine prior to an event has many advantages:

  • Pro-active response
  • Help prevent ice from forming
  • Does not allow snow/ice to bond with pavement, allowing for less material usage in longer events
  • Brine does not bounce or blow off roadway, if the storm is delayed, the salt residue remains ready to work.
