HOUSTON: Drivers are advised to stay off the roads if at all possible. METRO has closed all HOV and HOT lanes at this time.

Harris County Toll Road Authority (HCTRA) and Fort Bend Toll Road will waive tolls across the system from 12 p.m. Tuesday, January 16, through 12 p.m. Wednesday, January 17, 2018, due to inclement wintry conditions. Officials encourage drivers to stay off the road if possible; however, for those who must drive, please drive cautiously.

Houston METRO announced it will suspend bus service through Wednesday morning. Park and Ride routes and METRO HOV/HOT lanes will be closed the entire day and METROLift trips for Wednesday are cancelled.

If you see a roadway that has ice on it, you are asked to call 311 or 713-837-0311. Houston Public Works will be able to dispatch a truck with chat rock to provide traction. Please do NOT call 911 to report slick roads.

You can also use the Harris County Sheriff’s Office’s Motorist Assistance Line to report ice on roadways: 713-225-5627.

Motorists are being advised to stay at home if possible. If you have to drive, remember these tips from the Harris County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management:

  • Always buckle your seatbelt.
  • Turn on your lights to increase your visibility to other motorists.
  • Brake gently to avoid skidding. If your wheels start to lock up, ease off the brake.
  • Don’t use cruise control or overdrive on icy roads.
  • Be especially careful on bridges and overpasses.
  • Know your vehicle and how it operates. Not all cars respond the same to slippery roads.
