    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The highway department is standing by in preparation for winter weather.

    After the ice storm we experienced a few weeks ago, the highway department said they have received mix reviews on their cleanup; however, the crews said they don't expect this weather to call for extensive action.

    "We pay attention to what the National Weather Service has to say in their forecast models, and as they change those models, we change our plans accordingly, so when it gets right down to the time the precipitation is falling, we're ready. We know what our game plan is going to be," Danny Straessle, an AHTD spokesperson.

    The highway department encourages drivers to always be aware of bridges and overpasses during freezing conditions.
