Weather forecasts generally agree that the Highway District 12 area will see at least some snow this weekend.
D12 Snowfighters are on it, ready to battle snow, ice, and anything else Mother Nature sends this way. On Friday, you may see plow trucks out on the roadways spreading salt brine. It looks like water, but it is actually a form of pre-treating the roads prior to a snow event.
Salt brine prevents snow and ice from bonding to the pavement, which makes plowing and cleanup faster, easier, and safer.
D12 manufactures salt brine at the Shelby Maintenance Garage for all 10 maintenance facilities in the District’s seven counties: Lawrence, Johnson, Martin, Floyd, Knott, Pike, and Letcher.
