GovInnovations's picture

Following the lead of counterparts across New England and in most of the countrys snowier climes, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation this afternoon unveiled its first salt brine production plant to produce anti-icing liquid for the states highways. The $160,000 BrineXtreme not counting the price of a 4,000-gallon tanker truck, storage tanks, and other infrastructure and paraphernalia can churn out more than 6,000 gallons of brine an hour.
