Highway Anti-Icing Products and Applications

Started: December, 2016 End Date: December, 2018 Project ID #4w6458 Status: Ongoing

Objective

The objective of this project is to investigate road friction after deicing during winter storms.

Abstract

Colorado DOT Research Program is interested in addressing some concerns expressed by maintenance personnel regarding slippery road conditions that may develop after conducting anti-icing treatments prior to a forecasted winter storm.  WTI is currently conducting a research project looking at road friction after deicing during winter storms.  This project will enable additional field trials, and provide an opportunity to measure friction after anti-icing applications.
