NTTA prepares for possible ice storms before they come.
As of Noon Tuesday, Dallas’ Department of Street Services continued its sanding operations at Ice Force Level 1. Crews focused on bridges, overpasses, inclines and critical public safety areas.
A 16-year-old driver was killed Monday evening in a crash on FM 156 south of SH 114.
As icicles formed over Denton County, people donned their thick winter jackets for a stroll through the snow. The snow and ice though has some people working harder.
Getting to class was tricky, for some University of North Texas students today, after snowflakes coated Denton County. Slick sidewalks made it difficult for kids to walk across campus and slushy roads proved to be dangerous for drivers.
Some doctors tried to pull off what seemed impossible this past weekend. They navigated on the ground and through the air on a mission to save two lives.
With much of the ice thawed from last weekend’s storm many homeowners in North Texas are turning to cleaning up their storm-damaged property.
It’s a decision that isn’t taken lightly in any school district. Regardless if the answer is yay or nay, many people end up criticizing the decision to either close or open schools after a winter storm.
It seems the opinions of state and local agencies about road conditions and clearing efforts are varying greatly from those of North Texas drivers.
Drivers in Fort Worth and across Tarrant County saw some of the worst driving conditions. In fact, police were asking people to stay off the roads, all weekend. Drivers were even asked to delay their commutes as long as possible Monday.
