Brown talked about his organization’s latest efforts to make roadways safe for drivers in winter while minimizing the environmental impact of salt use.
SICOP is a winter maintenance technical service program originally formed by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials in 1993.
Its ongoing mission: to help improve winter operations strategies for state DOTs and others involved in snow and ice removal work through the dissemination of information regarding new technologies and techniques.
