With temperatures in the 80s, who’s thinking about winter road salt? Road agencies are – and they’re seeing higher prices.
The ongoing road salt shortage in metro Detroit is creating a new worry for local businesses — lawsuits.
Road crews in the tri-county area were summoned to their salt trucks and snow plows Friday morning after a passing storm dumped a few inches of snow in metro Detroit.
The salt sheds are loaded and county crews are ready for the first accumulating snowfall of the year, according to the Michigan Department of Transportation.
The mild winter has meant money in the bank for local road departments.
