TxDOT PREPARES FOR POSSIBLE FREEZING CONDITIONS
“TxDOT Maintenance Crews Pre-Treat Roadways in Montgomery and Waller Counties”

TxDOT crews are getting ready for possible freezing conditions Tuesday night and Wednesday morning by spraying magnesium chloride on bridges and overpasses in Montgomery and Waller Counties. Magnesium Chloride must be sprayed in advance of anticipated precipitation to work effectively as an anti-icing agent. TxDOT crews began spraying the following locations this morning and expect to be complete before 5 p.m. rush hour traffic.

Montgomery County

  • SH 105 West from IH 45 to Grimes County Line
  • FM 1097 (the long bridge across Lake Conroe)
  • IH 45 N from Loop 336 N to the Walker County Line
  • Loop 336 in Conroe 

Waller County

  • US 290 from the Brazos River to FM 362
  • SH 6 from Grimes County Line including the Flyover
  • IH 10 at Brazos River
  • FM 1458 at Brazos River
  • FM 529 at Brazos River
  • SH 159 at Brazos River

Current weather forecast suggests that the greatest potential for roadway impacting conditions are in the northern and western regions of the Houston District Area; however, TxDOT maintenance crews and sand trucks will be on standby starting tomorrow night to address additional locations as needed. We will continue to monitor the weather and roadways in the upcoming days. 

Motorists are encouraged to stay informed of road conditions. For updated information on road conditions in the Houston District as well as statewide, please call our hotline at (800) 452-9292 or visit http://www.dot.state.tx.us/travel/road_conditions.htm.
