For snow and ice control, we apply a road salt and sand mixture. The sand provides traction on the snow and ice while the road salt works to melt it away.
In order for the salt to melt the snow and ice, temperatures must be at 15° Fahrenheit or above, anything less, and the salt will not work.
This year, we are trying a new product for snow and ice control called Clearlane. Clearlane is road salt with a chemical additive that reacts to moisture and melts away snow and ice in colder temperatures.
