Roads where salt was applied during Winter Storm (February 18-22, 2018)

The week of Feb. 18-22, 2018, PBOT used a road salt product called Ice Kicker. Unlike table salt, Ice Kicker has anti-corrosive properties that reduce the risk of causing rust on vehicles and infrastructure. The manufacturer adds blue dye, which makes it visible to the public and city crews. PBOT uses only about 200 pounds per lane mile, a low rate of application that further reduces the chances of harm to vegetation and property. PBOT spread about 140 tons of road saltearlier this week. The salt appears to have helped keep many key routes open, including Germantown Road, a notorious trouble spot that has been safe for travel all week.
