Developing Friction Data to Support the Optimal Use of Pre-Wet Deicing Salt for Enhanced Winter Mobility

The objectives of this project are: (1) to investigate in the laboratory the effects of pre-wetting product type, pre-wetting ratio, and application rate of pre-wet deicing salt on the friction performance of deiced asphalt pavement under typical weather conditions in the Pacific Northwest region; and (2) to develop a plan for field operational tests (FOTs) designed to validate or calibrate the laboratory findings and to guide the appropriate use of pre-wet deicing salt for enhanced winter movements of passengers and freight.
