    Driving through Texas saw pre-wetting brine solution being applied highway and reading up in it find its better than road salt by itself. Az DOT should be checking it out up north.

  3. ADOT Marana I-10 Update says:

    As part of the project to improve the Ina Road interchange at Interstate 10, the Orange Grove Road off-ramp from westbound I-10 will be closed and traffic shifted to the Sunset Road off-ramp.

    The westbound frontage road will remain open to Orange Grove and north to the Orange Grove on-ramp. The frontage road north of the Orange Grove on-ramp will remain closed for the duration of the 25-month Ina Road project.
    The Arizona Department of Transportation will close Ina at I-10 about 1 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 15, as part of a project to improve the interchange by building a bridge to carry Ina over I-10 and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. The $120 million project also includes widening both Ina and I-10 and other improvements in the area.
    Access to area businesses on both sides of I-10 will be maintained throughout the project, which is scheduled for completion in early 2019. Ina will be closed only at I-10.

    On Tuesday, the right lane of westbound I-10 will be closed at Orange Grove from 9 a.m. to noon for signal maintenance work. The right lanes of I-10 will be closed intermittently between Avra Valley and Sunset roads beginning at 9 p.m. Tuesday for overhead sign work.
