Ice threat keeps highway crews busy in western Md.

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) -- Forecasts for freezing rain, sleet and snow are keeping state highway crews busy in western Maryland.

The State Highway Administration said Monday it has crews out from Frederick west to make sure roads are salted and passable on Christmas Eve.

The National Weather Service predicts precipitation starting Monday morning in the far western mountains and spreading east into the evening.

Highway administration spokesman David Buck says he doesn't expect major problems. He says the storm is expected mainly during daytime hours, when temperatures should be high enough to prevent icing.

Parts of Garrett County got up to 10 inches of snow over the weekend
