Around 10:00 a.m. today (1/23), Public Services will be using the anti-icing truck to spray highways with Beet Heet Severe. It is a product used to reduce the bonding of snow/ice to the pavement. It is not hazardous to living beings or property.
The streets that will be treated initially are Milwaukee Avenue, Dempster Street and Ballard Road. If there is time, the truck will move to Oakton Street and Waukegan Road.
