Science behind treating icy roads


BENTONVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) — Benton County road crews are working 12-hour shifts today in case of winter weather.

A dozen trucks were out earlier putting salt brine on the roads.

Rain can wash some of that away, so the road department continues to monitor all of the roads for slick spots.

If any snow does fall, they will switch from brine to a salt-sand mixture.
