Cheesy Roads, anyone?



The Department of Public Works for the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin has recently decided to proceed with a pilot project, testing cheese brine as a supplement to rock salt on icy roads in winter months.



The city well known for their delectable cheesy goods says that the cheese brine which has a distinctive odor, would be used in cold weather to wet rock salt right before it’s dropped on the street.



It would be a great money-saver way and a great recycling idea for the city’s municipal budget.




So soon, roads in the largest city of Wisconsin will smell of the same stuff that they are famous for, and also a state where football fans proudly wear foam cheese wedges on their heads… the irony! LOL!



Fun fact: Cheese brine is a salt and water solution, commonly used in the making of Italian varieties such as Mozzarella and Parmesan.
