Johnston using special brine to treat roads during storms

JOHNSTON, R.I. (WPRI) — One Rhode Island town is making snow cleanup look easy.

The Town of Johnston said it uses a special mixture to treat its roads during winter storms – and so far, crews are getting roads cleared faster and the town is saving money.

Johnston Department of Public Works Director Arnold Vecchione said his town has been using the liquid brine solution to treat roads for the past three years.

Meteorologist Pete Mangione was in Johnston Thursday. See his report in the video above.
