With parts of the area under a winter storm watch for most of the weekend, drivers should check road conditions before hitting the highways.
The Texas Department of Transportation has a few options for travelers:
- This website allows users to choose a particular state highway and county to narrow down the search;
- This site shows a map of the roads closed for various reasons, including ice and snow;
- Drivers can also call (800) 452-9292 to get information on road conditions.
