With the area seeing winter weather possible this weekend, the Texas Department of Transportation has worked this week treating roadways with brine in advance of the system.
TxDOT officials say crews will work throughout the weekend, monitoring and treating roadways, bridges, and overpasses as needed.
While brine works to minimize ice from bonding to roadways and structures as wintry precipitation begins to fall, drivers are urged to use extreme caution because of the potential for black ice, which appears as dry pavement. Ice on bridges and overpasses will continue to be a concern in the impacted areas.
TxDOT gives some tips for winter weather travel.
