Alberta Transportation pilot project stops ice from forming

“It’s the actual enhancement of the safety level here that we’re interested in,” said Allan Lo, an intelligent-transportation-systems and traffic-safety specialist with Alberta Transportation. “The system is designed to prevent ice from forming which is different from, shall we say, traditional methods of de-icing the roadway. If the ice does not have a chance to form and bond to the road the system uses less chemical (to de-ice the pavement).”
