TXDOT, Last week was very different states scrambling to fix the roads. There were wrecks and injuries all over the place. Even in hot Texas, there were some very difficult road conditions. TxDOT is urging drivers to stay away from roads. TxDOT is working as hard as they can to bridges and viaducts of sand. These are the most dangerous places you can be. Make sure you avoid these areas if you decide you must go out. TxDOT says they cannot encourage drivers to stay off the roads enough. The spokesman Bob Colwell said that no matter what they did, it is impossible for anything thaw until noon. All ten counties in the region have the same road conditions. Everybody said it was clever and dangerous. I suggest that you listen and keep on TxDOT roads.
Cynthia Northup white helps explain how, exactly, teams will alternate on the roads in the Dallas area. She said that the Dallas District has 16 snowplows, and the District of Tarrant 14. Dallas has two side-line skates and more than 120 pieces of equipment – a mix, “she said, 6 – and 10-year trucks with boxes of spacing, fluid deicing trucks, truck safety, plpows Snow, bladers, and more. These platforms are operating more than 200 workers across the district, which includes an area much: the counties of Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Kaufman, Navarro and Rockwall.
Some sites with multiple tracks included the High Five I-30 I-35, Loop 12, Spur 408, I-635, “she said.
“We have already mobilized a lot of our snow and ice of the plans has caused the displacement and targeting of resources (labor, equipment, materials) from other areas such as Amarillo, Atlanta, and Brownwood Childress districts with the resources of Houston, Waco and Distircts Paris. We are trying to mobilize more snowplows in other districts such as Lubbock and Amarillo additional snowplows. The total accumulation of snowplows additonal is 44 (for both districts) with an additional 50 workers. ”
If you do not feel the cold again, you certainly are today. The gel could do for hazardous driving conditions Thursday night or Friday morning commute.
The snow is expected in the country of hills 10:00 p.m. to 2:00. TxDOT trucks are waiting in the city, preparing to ice should turn the sheet of snow. Meanwhile, many drivers are preparing for the worst.
“If it snows, I will not come out. I’ll stay home,” said Sandra Hathaway, a driver from San Antonio.
If snow should stick roads, many drivers plan to do the same.
“I prefer not to drive,” said Lisa Steubing. “But we have to wait and see what my work says about this.”
The Texas Department of Transportation has activated its command post to monitor the weather overnight.
“There is a possibility that snow could actually turn into ice,” said TxDOT spokesperson Laura Lopez. “We want to ensure that we monitor weather conditions, in addition to our bridges and overpasses.”
Forecasters San Antonio could see, at most, an inch of snow on the road Friday morning. Chances are that by moving, however, the roads are just wet. But even that could be dangerous. Wet roads Tuesday morning caused a big wreck platform supported to I-35.
“The worst possible scenario is that we close the roads down,” said Lopez. “But this is not our intention. Our intention is to keep roads open and safe for motorists.”
Staff invites you to drive slowly and take extra precautions on the road.
“Just keep your eyes open and try to be as safe as possible,” said pilot Jacob Leibowitz.
