TxDOT Preparing for the Potentially Icy Weather

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

While the cold blast continues in South Texas, the Texas Department of Transportation is busy preparing for the possibility of icy roads.

"TxDOT has pre-positioned trucks and materials to respond to those conditions particular if there is icing on overpasses or bridges in northern parts of the Coastal Bend county," said Ricky Dailey of TxDOT.

Crews were preparing for the possible winter weather on Greenwood Drive, stocking up on a mix called ice rock, which will be spread on the roads if they come slick. The rocks will help provide traction.

TxDOT will have 20 trucks ready to roll out if overpasses began to ice up.
