Ice Forming on Area Bridges
Areas of light snow, sleet, and freezing rain have been falling across parts of the Pineywoods today and the chance of more wintry mix for area continues through Friday night. As a result, Texas Department of Transportation crews have begun the process of treating bridges and overpasses.
Some East Texas roadways and bridges have started to see some ice accumulation. Here's the latest listing as of 11 this morning:
- Houston County: Patches of ice developing on SH 21 West at the Trinity River Bridge.
- Polk County: U.S. 59 bridges at Bear Creek and Piney Creek are icing over. Ice developing on some areas of the roadway as well.
- San Augustine County: Ice accumulating on SH 147 bridge which has been treated with rock.
- Trinity County: Crews putting rock on bridges on SH 19, FM 356, FM 230 due to ice starting to accumulate.
Crews in Angelina, Nacogdoches, Sabine, San Jacinto and Shelby counties are checking the roadways but no reports of problems with ice at this time.
