TESTS CLEAR SNOW, PATH FOR USE OF LIQUID ANTI-ICING IN NORTHWEST

Oregon and Washington State participated in the Federal Highway Administration's Test and Evaluation Project 28 in which field tests of various anti-icing methods with liquid calcium magnesium acetate (CMA) were conducted. The project, known as TE28, is a follow-on to anti-icing studies conducted under the earlier Strategic Highway Research Program. Oregon and Washington chose liquid CMA because it has proven low-corrosion properties and is considered safer for the environment than some other anti-icing chemicals. This articles describes the testing and evaluation protocols in Oregon and Washington, compares anti-icing test sites with control sites, and outlines the environmental and economic benefits of anti-icing liquids.
