Road Sand and Salt Not as Effective in Frigid Temperatures

The Town of Kindersley is reminding motorists to please remember to slow down and drive for the winter conditions. Many intersections in Kindersley are very icy and the water main break on the 300 block of 7th Avenue West has made the area even more icy.

The frigid temperatures of the cold snap has decreased the effectiveness of salt and sand. Salt and sand on the road are more effective when the temperature is closer to -15C. the Public Works Department will still be sanding in the cold temperatures, although due to traffic the sand is quickly picked up on tires and does not last long!

For questions and or concerns call the Town at (306) 463 2675 or send an email at
