SHA Starts Preparing Roads For Storm

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - The Maryland State Highway Administration says they are preparing the State's roads for another winter storm. The storm is expected to affect travel on Tuesday, and early forecasts predict significant snowfall.

SHA suggests that drivers prepare for tomorrow's conditions, which by allowing extra time for reduced speeds. Crews have reportedly already started anti-icing operations along major interstates and heavily-traveled routes.

SHA reminds all travelers to remember these tips:

• Prepare today for tomorrow's travel. Providing additional time and space for highway crews and law enforcement makes traveling safer for everyone.

• Emergency trucking parking will be available if weather conditions deteriorate. The map with locations is available at www.roads.maryland.gov.

• Use caution when merging at ramps and intersections, and remain alert for pedestrians and cyclists.

• If your vehicle becomes disabled, make every effort to move safely from the travel lane and onto the shoulder.

• Ensure all head and tail lights are operational - See and Be Seen. Wipers On. Lights On. It's the Law.

• Before traveling to the airports, train stations or bus terminals, Know Before You Go! Dial 511 from a land line or mobile phone for traffic, weather alerts and road conditions. For internet access, visit www.MD511.org or www.chart.md.gov to view live traffic cameras.
