Latest from TxDOT on Winter Weather conditions in Northeast Texas
Winter Weather hits Northeast Texas this morning, with the Texas Department of Transportation surveying the situation on our roadways. Here's the latest from TxDOT for Northeast Texas.
From a TxDOT release to the media:
TxDOT forces have been out this morning focusing on the current winter weather across North Texas. TxDOT will be working throughout the day to ensure our roads remain passable and safe. Particular attention is given to bridges, high traffic interchanges and roadways. We are using snowplows, salt spreaders and liquid de-icing rigs to assist with de-icing/anti-icing of the roadways and bridges. We are currently focusing on using the granular de-icing materials to improve traction on the roadways. If travel can be avoided please stay off the roadways, bridges and roadways will freeze overnight and remain slick. Paris – Hwy 82, Hwy’s 271 North and South is the worst of the roadways at this time. Bonham – Hwy 82 is our main concern and focus. Clarksville, Cooper, Sulphur Springs, Mt. Vernon, Sherman and Emory – All areas are covered and extreme caution is advised when traveling. Greenville – I-30 is slow moving.
