Have you noticed these lines on the road? Wonder what it is? 

Every so often in the Winter, we see these lines on the road. Is it from some machinery being dragged down the road? Nope. It's brine. Jim Piccola, Public Information Officer for the DOT, says due to the winter weather advisory for sleet and freezing rain, they applied a brine solution to prevent mixed precipitation from forming ice and sticking to the asphalt or concrete road surface.

So, when we see these lines on the street, it means our DOT is working hard to make sure the roads are safe for us.
