The trucks in the Adk's use a sand/salt mix.

I live in Franklin County, and I know for a fact that the State uses straight salt on Route 3. They haven't used sand in the mix for years. I was told the state changed because it cost too much in the spring to sweep the sand up on the sides of the roads.

I live on Goldsmith Road (dirt road) in Sugarbush and they have salted and sanded this road as long as I can remember..... until this year. Now, they are using a sand/gravel mix.
