With the possibility of snow, rain and sleet in the forecast for Thursday, the state Department of Transportation and Development announced they are prepared to deal with winter weather conditions.

DOTD officials say they will be monitoring the roads for ice, and crews will be on standby to apply sand and salt to any bridges affected.

DOTD urges motorists to use extra caution when traveling on roadways during hazardous weather conditions and stay off the roads whenever possible. 

Motorists can also obtain information regarding road closures by contacting DOTD's Customer Service Center at 1-877-4LA-DOTD (1-877-452-3683).

The center is open 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
