NORTH TEXAS (CBS 11 News) - The Texas Department of Transportation prepared for potential ice and sleet Sunday, by pre-treating roads on the north side of the DFW Metroplex.

Bridges and overpasses, from Denton to McKinney were covered with salt and/or sand in anticipation of accumulation.

And while serious accidents were at a minimum, the Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol responded to multiple pileups attributed to the slick conditions.

On the 100 miles of DFW area tollroad, troopers responded to approximately 20 accidents, Sunday afternoon, including a crash involving multiple cars on the Sam Rayburn Tollway.

TxDOT will monitor roads overnight; a spokesperson is telling drivers to expect delays with the morning rush hour.

A spokesperson for Texas DPS echoed that statement, saying not all icy patches will be dry by morning.

Frankie Thompson and his friend left a Super Bowl viewing party early. He drove down to McKinney from Grayson County, where he says conditions north of the town of Anna were worse than in Collin County.

“I saw a couple of cars on the side of the road in Sherman and the sweeper trucks were going through, trying to break up the ice on the road,” said Thompson.
