With the onslaught of freezing weather, the City of Sequim Public Works Crew is spraying magnesium chloride, a de-icing agent on all main arterials, overpasses, hills, and roundabouts.
Magnesium chloride is most effective when applied to dry roads. It is effective as a de-icing agent between the temperatures of 40 degrees and minus 15 degrees.
Residents can expect to see some damp streaks in a striping pattern on the roads where the de-icing agent is laid down.
City crews will continue to de-ice city streets through the anticipated freezing spell this week.
For more information on magnesium chloride, visit www.freezgard.com or contact City of Sequim Streets manager Mike Brandt at 360-683-4908 or email@example.com with questions.
