TXDoT, EOC Preps for Major Hurricane

TXDoT says there won't be traffic delays, but a week's worth of hurricane training will give them an added presence on local highways.

Governor Rick Perry has ordered a preparedness exercise that will begin Wednesday and involves around 100 cities and counties in Texas.

While practicing for contraflowing roads, TXDoT will have personnel out on US 290 and Interstate 45. The roads will not be affected by the drills, and personnel will only be on the roads Wednesday.

Also, Brazos County's Emergency Operations Center will be activated as part of the exercise, which will consist of a Category 5 hurricane making landfall in Corpus Christi on Friday.
