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.
