February Freeze: Wichita Falls Street Crews Clear School Zones

Wednesday night and into Thursday morning Wichita Falls street crews are working to make sure the busy roadways are safe for Texomans.

Street Superintendent for the city, Larry Krugle, believed this weather event was much better for the roads than last week's February Freeze.

"It's just a matter of keeping the major routes through the city open," he said.

The road crews worked throughout Wednesday to grate, chat, and clear roadways.

"I think that if you notice that today its getting a lot better, see a lot of bare pavement so we are making progress," explained Krugle.

Teams, in communication with county and state agencies, covered major intersections and highways.

"We are kind of connected together, TXDOT and we do, kind of get interconnected to get people to work or whatever they need to be," Krugle said.

Spotters will locate whatever areas haven't been cleared, or need to be re-worked, due to blown snow.

"They'll be working all though the night," he said with a smile.

School zones will be focused on Wednesday night just in case class is in session for the Wichita Falls Independent School District.

 "We are doing the best we can and we're always trying to do better," said Krugle.
