The City of Fort Saskatchewan confirmed there are no plans on adopting the de-icing spray.
Edmonton is experimenting with calcium chloride spray on high traffic routes like the Yellowhead Trail and Anthony Henday Drive to help combat slick roads.
One of the problems identified with the brine is it attacks the steel and wiring looms on vehicles as well as affecting concrete infrastructure.
"At this time, we have no plans of moving towards the calcium spray," said Brian Rogers, manager or Roads and Utilities with the City of Fort Saskatchewan.
Instead, Fort crews use a mix of sand and salt.
"Most of the time, we're using a sand that's been pickled with a four per cent salt mix for traction," explained Rogers. "If it gets to where we need to cut ice, we will use a salt with it."
Crews check the roads on a regular basis. As soon as there's snow coming down, sanders are sent out to check intersections.
If that snow starts to accumulate, plows head out to start clearing roads.
Rogers urged drivers to stay back from snow plows and sanding trucks and not to try and drive around them if it's unsafe.
