BALTIMORE - Maryland State Highway Administration crews are preparing for another round of winter weather expected to bring a few inches of snow to western and central Maryland.
As forecasters call for snow starting at around midnight Friday into Saturday, officials say crews will be on hand to manage the situation.
"Fortunately, in many areas of the State, we are ahead of the game because there is still salt on the roads from our applications earlier in the week," SHA Administrator Melinda B. Peters said. "We will supplement where necessary, and our plow operators will be standing by ready to begin clearing as soon as the storm starts tonight."
In Montgomery, Prince George's, Baltimore, Harford and Cecil counties, crews were pre-treating roads with salt brine, a liquid solution that functions as an anti-icer.
SHA officials say if you are are planning to drive on Saturday, you should reconsider if travel is necessary and staf off the roads until later in the day if possible.
Motorists should always have an emergency survival kit to include:
blanket or sleeping bag
flashlight with extra batteries
high calorie non-perishable food
first aid kit
a charged cell phone
kitty litter or other abrasives
