TxDOT prepares for winter weather


TxDOT PREPS FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF WINTER PRECIPITATION
All Nine Counties Are Pretreating Bridges and Overpasses                   January 10, 2020

WICHITA FALLS DISTRICT – All nine counties (Archer, Baylor, Clay, Cooke, Montague, Throckmorton Wichita, Wilbarger, and Young) in the Wichita Falls District are spending this morning pretreating bridges and overpasses with brine for the possibility of snow or ice with tonight’s storm.  Be aware that depending on rainfall in different areas of the district, much of the anti-icing agent may washed off the roadways prior to any frozen event.  This could erase the benefits of the pretreatment. Motorists should slow down during any weather event and drive to the conditions.   Motorists can obtain travel information by visiting drivetexas.org or calling (800) 452-9292.
