This report evaluates the Minnesota Department of Transportation's (Mn/DOT) Salt Solutions program over the past two years. The evaluation documents the components of the program, describes the technology, and provides a detailed cost-benefit analysis. Recognizing the potential to reduce the level of salt and sand use, the maintenance division began a reduction initiative in District 1 during the 1996-97 snow and ice season. The Salt Solutions program sought to develop a set of tools and a system that allowed operators to make better application rate decisions, support those tools and systems with ongoing training, develop controls and measurements to track the effectiveness of the tools and training, and recognize improved performance. The program expanded statewide in the 1997-98 winter season. Results of this evaluation show that the program is cost-effective means of reducing the amount of salt and sand applied to Minnesota roadways while still maintaining a safe operating environment. In its first year, the program saved an estimated $177,000.
