Driving Conditions

Troopers respond to multiple crashes involving truck tractors towing semi-trailers that are blocking both east and westbound on IH-20 in the area of the 557 to the 559-mile marker. We urge motorists to avoid the area. Icing has slowed traffic east of Mt Vernon on I-30.  

Winter Driving Tips

    • If you must drive, check weather forecasts before departing and visit www.DriveTexas.org or call 800-452-9292 to check highway conditions.
    • Ensure everyone in the vehicle is buckled up.
    • Give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination.
    • Use caution when driving on icy or slick roads. Reduce your speed! Remember, bridges and overpasses are the first to freeze.
    • If you start to slide, ease off the gas pedal or brakes. Steer into the direction of the skid until you feel you have regained traction, then straighten your vehicle.
    • If stranded, call 911 to alert emergency services. Remain in your vehicle.
