Roads remain open in the Texarkana, Texas region, but drivers are warned to remain cautious traveling over bridges and overpasses.

Travel is discouraged due to icy conditions, but the weather system is expected to end early in afternoon, reducing the hazardous conditions, says Brad Haugh, district administrator for the Atlanta, Texas, district of the Texas Department of Transportation.

Ice is reported on roadways, and TxDOT is patrolling and plowing.

Road crews are placing anti-icing granules on the bridges and overpasses.  

“It’s  under control,” Haugh said.

“The weather event is about to end and we haven’t had to close any roads or bridges. Some accidents may have caused some roads to temporarily close, but they’re open,” Haugh said.
