Using Beet Juice to Fight the Ice | VideoRene Thibault | 1/11/2013
The North Dakota Department of Transportation has been supplying the Magic City with the liquid for about a month now. It`s being used on the city`s main roads and heavy traffic areas.
City Street Superintendent Rick Hair says they`ll continue to use it. “As long as we can get it from the state, we`ll keep on using it. Like I said, bridge decks and hills or on Broadway where you get good traffic it works well. So as long as we can get it from the state, and they`ve been more than generous, we`ll use it, that`s our plan.”
The city plans on building its own brine plant in 2014.
