Georgia DOT preps state highways for winter weather

The Georgia Department of Transportation is prepping state highways for possible winter weather later today.

Spokeswoman Natalie Dale said GDOT is applying brine to highways in all counties north of Macon. She said the agency will continue to apply brine throughout the day and will have plows and salt trucks on stand-by tonight.
