Here's the latest Texas winter weather update from the City of Plano.
Crews sanded Plano roads all night, but the roads are still very slick. Vehicles are reportedly slipping and spinning out due to the hazardous driving conditions. Last night, a fire truck at station #8 (Hedgecoxe and Robinson) slid into a fence after coming to a complete stop.
Public Works is putting additional crews on the roads to increase sanding capacity.
Texas winter weather-related traffic, water, and medical calls have increased in the last 24 hours. Plano Police and Plano Fire-Rescue responded to numerous calls regarding traffic accidents and injuries due to people slipping and falling on ice.
There was a reported power outage last night on the 4600 Block of Hedgcoxe, where approximately 121 people were without power. Power has since been restored.
Trash and recycling collection has paused today. Carts will be serviced on Friday. The recycling processing center remains closed.
Originally scheduled for tonight, the Plano Town Hall on Public Safety will be rescheduled to Thursday, March 17.
