ODESSA, TX (NEWS RELEASE) -- TxDOT crews spent the past few days pre-treating major roads and overpasses with brine.

However, if rain continues much of the anti-icing agent could be washed off the roadways.

Maintenance forces will begin work before dawn Saturday to monitor conditions and address any needs.

Motorists should always drive to the worst possible conditions and act as if nothing has been treated.

TxDOT is concerned with the potential for icy conditions Saturday morning. Drivers are reminded that the highways could be slick as if pre-treating had NEVER happened. Travel in the morning is discouraged if your area gets hit with freezing rain.
