Cities across the state are electing to spray brine on the roads to keep them ice free.

Some say brine does a better job than salt. The Minnesota Department of Transportation has added brine sprayers to it’s fleet of 840 snowplows.

The brine spewing trucks are scheduled to apply a thin coat of the mixture 24 to 48 hours before a storm, creating a barrier to prevent precipitation from sticking to the road.
