The Door County Highway Department will be expanding the use of salt brine on roadways during wintry weather. The solution combines water, salt and other chemicals. The mixture has grown in popularity among Wisconsin counties because of its effectiveness and economic benefits. Door County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej says salt brine has been very effective in the early stages of winter storms.

 

 

The use of brine helps counties save money when buying salt in preparation for upcoming winter driving seasons.
