Door County closer to its own salt-brine facility

The Door County Highway Department is a step closer to having its own salt-brine manufacturing facility for winter use on area highways.  The Door County Board of Supervisors will consider an authorization to proceed with the project, which is being made possible through a state grant.  The highway department currently purchases and transports salt-brine from Brown County.  Door County Administrator Ken Pabich says the new facility will make the use of salt-brine more economical and earth-friendly.

Pabich says the new salt-brine manufacturing operation at the Sturgeon Bay highway garage is expected to be up and running by late fall of this year.
