Road salt still in good supply

The shortage of road salt that challenged many local municipalities in 2019 does not appear to be a problem this winter.  Sturgeon Bay Municipal Services Director Mike Barker says although the street department has already exceeded the total salt used compared to last winter, he is optimistic that the supply will be enough until the spring.



Barker adds that the Sturgeon Bay Street Department has not had success with salt brine and uses regular road salt.  He says if concerns are that temperatures are too low for the salt to be effective, a sand/salt mix can be applied on the roadways.  Generally, road salt loses its effectiveness once the temperature falls below 15 degrees
