Bob Colwell of the Bryan office of the Texas Department of Transportation says they are ready again for the worst.  Colwell says TxDot is prepared for the weather but is asking the public to slow down and be safe.

TxDot recommends reducing speed, maintain at least three times or more the normal following distance on snow or ice.

Watch carefully for TxDot equipment and stay at least 400 feet back from the vehicle.

Use extra caution on bridges, ramps, overpasses and shaded areas as they tend to freeze first.
