In an attempt to keep Regina roads and sidewalks safe in the winter time, the city is going to experiment with liquid salt to see how it reacts.
The city has been looking at the experiences other cities have had with liquid salt and whether it not it can work here.
The city’s director of winter maintenance Chris Warren says the salt would be a major part of the work done when a significant snowfall is due to arrive.
Warren believes if this works, it will save the city money, as almost 40-percent of the sand used currently doesn’t stick and ends up being wasted at the side of the road.
With this mixture, it is hoped that would not happen.
