As we look forward to the first day of spring on Friday, Prince George’s County will be deploying crews in preparation for the wintry mix forecasted for the Washington Metropolitan area. Approximately 150 vehicles will be deployed Friday morning at 1 a.m.to treat the primary and major collector roadways as needed and then move into the residential areas.
“County crews are ready for what we hope will be the last snow event for this season,” said Darrell Mobley, Director of the Department of Public Works and Transportation. “According to the forecast, the snow will begin early Friday morning and end late in the afternoon with a possible accumulation of a trace to one inch of snow. Road conditions may become slick, especially in the northern area. Motorists are encouraged to add extra time for traveling and use caution when driving over bridges, ramps and overpasses.”
Residents are encouraged to wait 12 hours after the precipitation has stopped before reporting road conditions. To report adverse road conditions, call CountyClick at 311, the Snow Information Center at 301-350-0500 or go to the Snow Request Form on the County’s website at www.princegeorgescountymd.gov.
