HOUSTON – KPRC 2′s Andy Cerota spoke with a TxDOT representative Danny Perez about the wintry weather expected this weekend, as well as efforts to mitigate its effect throughout the Houston area.
Perez said a substance called brine -- made of salt and water -- is currently being spread on some area roadways ahead of the weekend weather.
Here’s a look at that process in the works.
