FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - TXDOT is getting ready for some potentially treacherous weather later today. 

TXDOT crews across North Texas are out and about pre-treating roadways, especially bridges and overpasses which can get especially slick in freezing precipitation.

Val Lopez with TxDOT says the fact that the bad weather is coming on a Friday afternoon does not help matters, and he's urging drivers to plan ahead.Crews are also out in rural areas to the north and west of Fort Worth, where Lopez says typically gets worse than in the urban areas.
