Texas Panhandle prepares for snow chances

Old man winter is knocking on the doorsteps of the Texas Panhandle. As the area prepares for snow throughout the week, the Texas Department of Transportation wants to remind drivers to use caution while driving.

A TxDOT spokesman also said that maintenance employees across the Panhandle are pretreating bridges and overpasses with deicing material just in case. Snowplows will be mounted to their trucks and other equipment has been installed on their trucks for snow and ice operations.

TxDOT adds the public is reminded that they can get instant information on local high profile roadways and incidents from Twitter, Facebook and at, or call 1-800-452-9292.
