Prince George’s County Deploys Crews in Preparation for Forecast of Snow

In anticipation of the snow and rain mixture forecasted for our area, Prince George’s County will deploy approximately 150 trucks at 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning to monitor and treat the primary and major collector roadways and then move into the residential areas.  Crews will also monitor and treat the bridges, ramps and overpasses.

“Forecasters are predicting a coating to an inch accumulation of snow that may cause slippery road conditions during the morning commute,” said DPW&T Director Darrell Mobley.  “Motorists are asked to drive safely and allow extra time for travel.”

County residents are asked to park on the even-numbered sides of residential streets or in their driveways to assist the crews in clearing the roadways.  Residents are also requested to remove snow/ice from the sidewalks abutting their homes and businesses.

To report roadway conditions, residents are encouraged to wait 12 hours after the precipitation has stopped before calling CountyClick at 311, the Snow Information Center at 301-350-0500 or going to the Snow Request Form on the County’s website at www.princegeorgescountymd.gov.
