CDOT preparing to use salt brine to treat roads ahead of storms
DENVER -- The Colorado Department of Transportation is testing new ways to keep roads safe during winter storms. CDOT crews will use salt brine to prevent ice from forming on roads during storms. The brine is used when temperatures begin to freeze at least eight hours before a storm. "Instead of waiting for the snow to accumulate and pushing it off, brining allows us to use our time better," said Mike O'Neill with CDOT.
