MDOT SHA PREPARES FOR WINTER WEATHER THAT COULD IMPACT MORNING RUSH HOUR TRAVEL; Snow, Freezing Rain Expected Through Much of Maryland
The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is preparing for a wintry mix that could impact much of the state overnight and into Monday. Snow accumulation is expected to start in Western Maryland, along with sections of Frederick, Montgomery, Carroll and Baltimore counties. The rest of the state could see rain or freezing rain, impacting the Monday morning commute.
MDOT SHA crews have pretreated roadways with brine, an anti-icing solution, and will continue to deploy resources late tonight and throughout the morning tomorrow. Motorists are encouraged to delay travel if possible and to exercise extreme caution on elevated surfaces such as ramps, bridges and overpasses, which freeze first.
