Stay frosty as you travel about tomorrow and Thursday, as there are chances for some slick conditions through the middle portion of our week:
The Lufkin District will begin pre-treating roadways today throughout the nine-county district including specific areas such as elevated structures and bridges, and pavement with the potential to freeze in our northern counties. Motorists should stay alert for this moving work zone and allow them room to work through these travel lanes that are prone to freeze. Reduce speed in winter weather conditions and be alert for frozen patches in rural areas.
