Salt has proven itself as the most effective, cost-efficient melting material for icy or snow-covered roads. However, as the temperature falls below 10-15 degrees Fahrenheit, salt loses its melting power and becomes ineffective. Public Works spreads salt to help provide traction, and as the temperatures rise the salt will activate and melt the ice. We urge drivers to be cautious as they approach intersections and sloped roads.
