Lubbock crews work to clear snow, TxDOT advises caution

Provided by: Texas Department of Transportation

LUBBOCK—Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) crews responded throughout Saturday night to winter weather affecting the South Plains and other regions across Texas. On Sunday, Lubbock district crews have continued their efforts to clear snow and ice off roadways; however, with temperatures remaining below freezing, many roads will remain icy. Travel today will be hazardous and is strongly discouraged.

TxDOT crews in Swisher, Castro and Parmer counties—Lubbock district areas receiving eight to 10 inches in snow accumulations—are currently plowing snow off roadways. With freezing temperatures, rural roadways in these areas may become snow/ice-packed overnight. Snow plow operations and clean-up efforts in these counties will continue into Monday and possibly Tuesday. Clean-up efforts district-wide are also expected to stretch into Monday.

Freezing temperatures will continue Sunday night and on into Monday morning. Motorists should keep in mind that any snow or ice that has melted during the day will refreeze tonight and are strongly advised to avoid any unnecessary overnight travel. Motorists are also strongly advised to use extreme caution, drive slow and increase their following distance as they make their Monday morning commutes.
