Md. officials pretreating roads in advance of expected snow

WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials in Maryland are pre-treating roads in advance of expected snowfall.

The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration said in a statement that central Maryland is expected to see snow Thursday night into early Friday. The State Highway Administration is spraying a brine solution on roads in advance of the snow.

SHA Administrator Gregory C. Johnson said in a statement that the storm is expected to impact Friday morning’s rush hour, which will be a challenge for crews because they become stuck in the same traffic that commuters do.

Johnson asked travelers to delay commuting to let crews effectively treat the roads.

The SHA said in a statement that drivers can view the latest road conditions on SHA’s website and clicking “CHART.”
