The city of Maple Grove is hoping a newer kind of road salt will help ease driver stress on winter roads.
The city still uses the typical white road salt, but this year public works doubled its order of blue salt. It's a blend of dry rock salt and magnesium and calcium chloride. It works better than regular salt when the road temperatures are colder.
For the second weekend in a row, Highway 100 is closing in both directions from Interstate-394 to Highway 62. Crews will demolish the Canadian Pacific Railway Bridge, which is located just south of Highway 7.
