TxDot Treating Roads

Posted: Updated:

Update: TxDot crews in Childress reports that many counties still have the same conditions as yesterday with wet pavement and areas of patchy and black ice. It is advised that drivers avoid any unnecessary travel.

TxDOT maintenance forces have been out since 5:00a.m. on Friday treating bridges and overpasses with de-icing materials.

They are also monitoring the road conditions because of the cold weather.  Sleet has begun to fall in several areas, creating some icy road conditions.

TxDOT will continue to work throughout the duration of the storm to ensure the roads remain passable and safe for drivers.

Travel should be avoided, if possible.

Counties reporting freezing rain and icy conditions:

Hardeman

Childress

Dickens

Foard

Cottle

Collingsworth

Wheeler

Motley

Briscos
