WACO, Texas — Texas Department of Transportation crews will treat highways in the Waco district with a brine solution ahead of possible freezing temperatures beginning Monday, according to a TxDOT news release.

The brine lowers the freezing point of moisture on the road to help prevent ice from forming.

Crews will primarily treat structures like bridges and overpasses on I-35, I-14 and state and U.S. highways, TxDOT said. The counties in the Waco district include Bell, McLennan, Hill, Coryell, Limestone, Hamilton, Falls and Bosque.

According to the 6 News weather team, most of Central Texas will see rain beginning Monday but temperatures were expected to remain above freezing.
