GDOT West Central District Prepping for Winter Storm Inga

THOMASTON – West Central Georgia Department of Transportation crews began pre-treating bridges and overpasses at 9 a.m. today in advance of winter storm Inga. Pre-treating began on the District's interstates and will continue to bridges on state routes.

"We expect to experience the leading edge of the wintry mix/snow in our far northwestern counties as the system then moves southeasterly through our District. Our forces were brought in at 7 a.m. this morning to start pre-treating bridges and overpasses ahead of it on a 12 hour shift schedule," District Maintenance Engineer Wes Kennedy said.

Crews will also be spreading a rock/salt mixture. The rock breaks up ice as cars travel over it. The ice mixed with the salt creates brine, which lowers the freezing point and reduces the chance the surface will ice. The District salt barns are stocked with about 6000 tons of the rock/salt mixture. Local crews will use spreaders, smaller snow plows and, if necessary, motor graders.
