West Seattle Weather Watch: Bridge, roads treated as temp drops

Wondering about the weather and roads tonight? No more snow/rain expected – just a clear, cold night, into the 20s. SDOT has been treating the West Seattle Bridge with salt and magnesium chloride, according to information shared by City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen. This city map shows de-icer’s been used on some other routes, too.

    Ha MSG is what they really should be using.

    I’m no salt-hater, but let’s hope they have the right mixture and concentration figured out when treating the bridge, my wheels rusted from the super-concentrated batch they used last winter when they applied twice as much as recommended.
