TxDOT crews pre-treating bridges, roads in anticipation of possible freezing rain

Caution urged as crews work on highways

ALERT: Crews will be pre-treating bridges in the nine-county Lufkin District today ahead of possible freezing rain early Wednesday morning. Motorists should stay alert and respect the moving work zone as trucks move through each area. Reduce speed and drive to weather conditions. The brine mixture that crews will apply is designed to keep water from freezing on the roadway as quickly as it would without the application, but motorists should always stay alert and watch for icy patches, especially in rural areas.
