Kewaunee County Highway Department finds brine beats salt

The Kewaunee County Highway Department has used brine solution over the past two years during winter storms. The salt-solution has been effective at keeping snow and ice from binding to road pavement. Other Wisconsin counties and Wisconsin’s Department of Transportation have had similar success. Kewaunee County Highway Commissioner Todd Every says while brine cannot be used in all winter conditions, it’s been a benefit to drivers and taxpayers.

 

 

Brine now has widespread use by county highway departments. The DOT says 63 of the state’s 72 counties used brine solutions for de-icing.
