Dallas’ Ice Force ready for winter weather
The City of Dallas is prepared to fight winter weather with the help of Ice Force One. Staff from Public Works and Trinity Watershed Management monitor weather and road conditions from Ice Force Command at the Southeast Service Center, and deploy trucks as needed.
The City has 30 trucks retrofitted with sand spreaders stationed at four strategic points throughout Dallas, and the Central Business District. The City can also activate over 30 additional trucks if needed. The sand used may have salt and/or additional de-icing materials as warranted by the road conditions.
The City of Dallas is responsible for keeping major city streets and Trinity River bridges clear and passable. The Texas Department of Transportation is responsible for the highways, and the North Texas Tollway Authority is responsible for the toll roads.
