TxDOT maintenance crews are currently treating bridges, overpasses and major roadways with de-icing materials and monitoring road conditions within the nine-county Brownwood District*.  Sleet, drizzle and freezing rain are falling in many areas throughout the region, creating some icy road conditions.  TxDOT will continue to work throughout the duration of this storm to ensure roads remain passable and safe, but travel should be avoided, if possible.
Brown and Comanche Counties are currently reporting freezing rain and icy conditions, which are expected to spread to other areas quickly.
Many counties throughout West Texas, the Panhandle, and North Texas are also reporting icy roads. Weather and road conditions can change rapidly. For more information on road conditions statewide, check www.drivetexas.org or call 800-452-9292.
