Eli, I read that you are looking for an alternative...

I read that you are looking for an alternative to road salt that would be environmentally friendly and still get the job done considering the harsh winter and snowfall this past year. I heard that in Wisconsin locals are using cheese brine and in Canada beet juice has been used. Also in other parts of the country, pickle brine has been used to lower the melt temperature of ice. Calcium Chloride is terrible for the environment, as is plain salt. I know that these methods will work in Pennsylvania in the coming winter.

I live in South Western Ontario (Canada) and we receive enough snow. Enough for me to also think about ideas along similar lines. I think the best thing to do would be to fundamentally redesign the transportation network.
