VERMONT'S WINTER MAINTENANCE STRATEGY OF SMART SALTING

A program called Smart Salting was tested in Vermont the winter of 1993-94 and implemented throughout the state during the winter of 1994-95. This brief article reports that anti-icing and deicing processes were used, resulting in less salt used and safer driving conditions. Salt application rates were based on the relationship between the pavement temperature, the melting capacity of salt, and the estimated thickness of ice/snow on the pavement.
