Dallas County Government Offices and Courts Closed Monday

After convening a call with the National Weather Service and our public and private partner agencies, I am closing Dallas County Government Offices and Courts tomorrow, Monday, February 23, 2015. My decision is based in large part on the National Weather Service’s high confidence in Dallas County experiencing a significant severe weather event which is forecast to begin at approximately 6:00 am tomorrow.

Although TxDot has pretreated most major highways with a brine solution, many secondary roads remain untreated. In Dallas County, secondary roads carry significant traffic.  Road treatment is ongoing and will continue throughout the event but it will not be possible to treat all secondary routes.

If you must drive tomorrow, please allot extra time and use extreme caution.

Stay warm, dry and safe,

Clay Jenkins
Dallas County Judge
