During an event such as one we currently under, where we have steady rain with falling temperatures, a lot of the materials used for snow and ice is not conducive to effective ‘pre-treatment’. KDOT and many urban Cities are using ‘salt brine’ for pre-treatment, which has some beneficial use prior to icing conditions when rain precedes the storm event. However, the brine, as with any other product will become diluted quickly and runoff the pavement quickly due to steady rain.
** REMEMBER to provide extra space for all road and emergency crews as they work to keep everyone safe! **
