The Texas Department of Transportation preparing for winter precipitation

Posted: Updated:

The Texas Department of Transportation is gearing up for icy conditions overnight.

TxDOT spokesperson Rickey Dailey says his department is monitoring the situation and TxDOT crews will be ready to respond.

This afternoon, crews will equip trucks with V-boxes filled with a sand-gravel mix. They will fill their trucks stationed at maintenance yards in Kingsville, Alice, Robstown, Corpus Christi, Sinton and George West. The v-box allows them to spread the sand-gravel mix on the roadways.
