Tx-DOT Road Preps

A winter storm is on its way into the area and the city and the Texas Department of Transportation has already started to prepare. 

Today, Tx-DOT received some new material to help mix with bottom ash and salt for roads.

It's the first time they have used this by-product and say it will help.

So far, they have spent more than a million dollars for materials, fuel, and man power.

The city also received thousands of pounds of salt and sand last week to prepare for the upcoming storm.
