AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- The Georgia Department of Transportation said its maintenance forces will begin brining parts of the CSRA as a precaution. They started doing so at noon.

Here's the areas they're hitting:
- I-20 from Newton County to Augusta
- I-520
- Primary state highways in Oglethorpe, Taliaferro, Wilkes, Lincoln, McDuffie, Warren, Morgan, Newton, Greene, Columbia, and Richmond counties.

Representatives said they're doing so as a precaution, in case we see wintry precipitation on Sunday into Monday morning. They also said they're looking at streams and drainage structures GDOT oversees for potential flooding.
