(WDTN) Dayton is taking the "winter blues" to a whole new level with its plan for road salt this winter.
The city wants to buy a chemical that it can mix with its de-icing solution to turn it blue when it's sprayed on its salt and on the roads.
The goal is to give residents proof their street was plowed.
"It's a good idea," says Street Maintenance Manager James Brinegar. "We do try to do different things to let the residents see we've been there."
