City of Lubbock Prepares for Winter Storm

On Monday the South Plains has seen a lot of rain but still no major signs of snow. The roads are slippery and drivers need to be extra careful. Earlier around town city crews and the Texas Department of Transportation were busy preparing for this holiday winter storm.

Starting at 6 a.m. city road crews were making their way around town, spreading salt on Lubbock streets. Texas Department of Transportation workers have also been out all day clearing the highways and overpasses for holiday travelers.

Tx Dot officials say they're dropping Magnesium Chloride Crystals on the slick roads to keep them from freezing. Street crews will be on-call working around the clock just in case of road emergencies, but they say the rest of the work is up to you. TX dot Director of Maintenance, Ted Moore says,"We do our best to try and keep them clear and safe but we don't have any control over how people drive. Everyone needs to keep in mind that if roads are wet and cold they're liable to be slick."

Once again, city and state officials will be out all night monitoring the weather. Over night, the weather service predicts between 2 and 4 inches of snow, with most of the snow falling north of Lubbock.
