Crews began pretreating all bridges and overpasses throughout Southeast Texas yesterday and will continue monitoring and treating where needed today.

"We us a salt brine mixture on the roadways, we use that to treat all our bridges and overpasses," says TXDOT PIO Sarah Dupre. "It basically makes the water freeze at a lower temperature."

Dupre says drivers need to be mindful of the surroundings, and to proceed with caution.

"Whenever they are approaching a bridge or an overpass thats been treated with this material make sure you drive on it we want people to breakit up and thats gonna help with that," says Dupre
