PennDOT anti-icing some area roads in advance of overnight storm

PennDOT anti-icing some area roads in advance of overnight storm

Motorists in north central counties are advised that PennDOT will be pre-treating some of the region’s major routes today in advance of the winter storm forecast to hit overnight.

Anti-icing, as it is called, involves wetting the highway with salt brine before a storm’s arrival. The solution lowers the freezing point of water and slows or prevents ice from forming a bond with the pavement during the early stages of a storm.

The anti-icing trucks may be seen along the area’s interstate highways and other major routes. The salt brine is spread from sprayers attached to the brine tank on PennDOT trucks. The trucks have signs on the backs indicating their purpose.

PennDOT reminds motorists to slow down and drive according to the conditions they encounter when winter storms hit.

PennDOT notes that the treatment isn't a silver bullet, and drivers will most likely still see roads that are snow-covered; rather it gives our crews an edge at the start of a storm.
