Keeping our roads safe this winter means state Department and Transporation and local DPW crews use a variety of chloride-based de-icers, road salt and in some communities, sand, to make your drive slip-free. A new AAA Automotive Engineering study reports those salt chemicals are causing an estimated $3 billion in vehicle rust damage annually. The AAA report revives a more than decade-long argument on how the state DOT - and local communities - treat their roads during winter storms. The state will continue to use the briny magnesium chloride solution and some towns will continue to use rock salt.
DUBOIS - As the warm weather streak continues, the Brady Street Car Wash in Clearfield County has seen hundreds of cars coming through. Owner Joe Manners said the car wash at 1247 South Brady Street averaged 300 cars per day over the weekend. "Since Friday, we've been packed," Manners said Monday. "People have actually been sitting near the edge of the road waiting to pull in. There's just been an endless amount of cars running through the automatics since Friday." Manners said it's a good idea to wash cars at this point of the year to get the salt off from underneath it. "You don't want to have your break and gas lines covered in salt, it just deteriorates them," Manners said.
EASTVALE >> A new Costco, anticipated to serve the communities of Eastvale, Ontario, Chino and Jurupa Valley, is expected to open in Eastvale later this year with the region’s first Costco car wash, according to city officials. The proposed 158,000-square-foot Costco, planned for the east side of Hamner Avenue just south of Cantu-Galleano Ranch Road, is expected to begin construction this year and will anchor a 45-acre retail complex, Eastvale City Manager Michele Nissen said. The Costco will also feature a 30-position gas station and the Inland region’s first Costco car wash, which will be self-serve, officials said.
