For bridges and overpasses that are open, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has 32 trucks out treating them with sand over night across the seven parishes in the NW Louisiana region. 

Erin Buchanan, the Public Information Officer with the DOTD spoke with KTBS about their efforts. 

"Then we will also be out... salting, ahead of hopefully no ice, but some snow obviously...the rest of the overpasses in our area and the bridges in our area," said Buchanan. "So that's obviously what's going to pose the most hazard for driving, are those bridges and overpasses," said Buchanan.
