ATLANTA, Texas — The Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) says they will be pretreating bridges and overpasses on Thursday and Friday as a precautionary measure due to a possibility of wintry weather in the Friday night forecast.

The transportation department asks drivers to be mindful of roadwork vehicles that will be spreading brine on the road. Brine is a solution consisting of salt and water designed to prevent ice and snow from sticking to surfaces.

Motorists are asked to slow down and increase the following distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you.
