The Boerne Streets Department is de-icing streets. Most of the roads were just wet, but elevated surfaces could've had some ice on them. Drivers are urged to practice caution. 

Boerne Streets Department de-icing City streets

Good morning, Boerne. As of 8:40 a.m., most of our local roads are still just wet but elevated surfaces have a glaze of ice on them. The most current forecast from the National Weather Service still calls for the highest ice accumulations across the Hill Country and along and west of I-35. They are calling this a “a significant event” and urging everyone to take the necessary precautions. The latest headlines are: • Winter Storm Warning in effect until Thursday morning now, temperatures expected to remain at or below freezing until then. • The freezing light rain and mist we have seen overnight is expected to become a heavier freezing rain this afternoon and evening. • The warming center remains open until 7 p.m. in the Community Room of the Library. • Crews from the Streets Department continue to apply salt/sand to prevent ice accumulations on elevated surfaces across the City. • Our Boerne Utilities Department is not reporting issues. • We encourage folks to stay off the roads and contact any City department via phone/email or see if any service you need can be conducted from our website. Our essential personnel are ready to respond to any issues that arise. • If you must travel today or tomorrow, drive with extreme caution, so slow down and give yourself extra space and time to get where you need to go.

Jan. 31, 8 a.m.

A major accident has been reported at Loop 1604 West at Lookout Road, which is backed up to Pat Booker Road.

Crews say to expect delays and use an alternate route if possible.

Jan. 31, 7:45 a.m.

Here is a live look at traffic on our rotating traffic cameras. Rain and drizzle continue to fall in the San Antonio area.

Bexar County is asking people to be prepared, saying freezing rain is more dangerous than snow, and can form on the ground. Officials ask that you use extreme caution if you need to travel.

The Bexar County Public Works department has been on stand-by since Monday. When there’s severe weather, it’s typical for the department to be on 24-hour rotations. During these rotations, they’re looking for any bridges and overpasses that need to be de-iced. They have their trucks loaded, and barricades ready.

The department will be covering all of Bexar County, but will focus more on the north side near 1604 toward the Hill Country. They anticipate this area will be hit the worst.

They’re going to be treating the roads with a new brine, made from beet juice.

"It’s totally organic, non-corrosive, non-toxic," said Public Works Superintendent Carlos Sandoval. "We use that as a pre-treat and post-treat. So, if the road still freezes over, we can go back over it with the brine, and it’ll help de-ice the structure.”

Sandoval said they’re going to continue monitoring the situation for the next few days.

The Texas Department of Transportation has also started treating roads and monitoring conditions. Governor Greg Abbott has dispatched DPS  to patrol roadways as well.
