TxDOT mobilizing 44 snow plows
The Texas Department of Transportation is bringing in 44 additional snowplows from West Texas and Childress areas, more than doubling the snowplow effort in Dallas and Tarrant Counties to 74 plows.
This effort will bring more than 50 additional personnel, bringing the personnel totals in the Dallas and Fort Worth Districts to approx. 600 working this winter storm.
TxDOT crews are using the snowplows to remove the top layer of snow, then following behind with magnesium chloride to melt the rem aining ice and snow.
TxDOT crews have been working 24/7 for five days to make the roadways as safe as possible for motorists and will continue to do so until this winter snow and ice storm is over.
