TXDOT Crews Ready to Roll

Posted:

GRAYSON CO., TX -- Texas Department of Transportation crews are on standby to work those slick spots that are sure to develop overnight.  KTEN's Chris Severy reports.

TXDOT sand trucks are full of sand, lined up and ready to head out at a moment's notice.  There are two shifts.  Each will work twelve hours at a time, throughout this evening and overnight.  They will concentrate on heavily traveled roads like Highways 75 and 82, and especially the bridges and overpasses, which will freeze first.  Noel Paramanantham with TXDOT says, "we start on the county line on 75 and go up to 82 and the same crew will turn around and go back to the county line.  There will be a second crew that goes from 82 to the Red River and they'll make a circle along that section."  Remember, if you do have to drive places tonight, slow down, allow for plenty of room between you and the other cars on the road and be extra careful when you go over bridges and overpasses.  If you do start to skid, lay off the gas, don't slam on your brakes and steer in the direction you want the front wheels to go.
