Md. SHA Focusing on Snow Cleanup Effort

Posted:

UNDATED- As crews continue to clean up following the latest winter storm that brought between 5 and 10 inches of snow to nearly all of Maryland, the State Highway Administration is asking motorists to continue to use caution Wednesday and reduce speeds. 

Officials said bitter cold temperatures and blowing snow will continue to be an issue as SHA crews and its contractors continue cleanup efforts.

"Our crews have made some excellent progress since the snow stopped overnight but that does not mean the work is done," said SHA Administrator Melinda B. Peters. "More than 2,500 pieces of equipment will be working on the State roads today and we continue to ask motorists to drive with extreme caution as crews continue addressing ramps and secondary roads."

SHA crews plowed and salted overnight and the interstates are mostly bare pavement with some isolated coverage. SHA's primary and secondary numbered roads have some snow cover but are passable, officials said. 

Snow totals at SHA's maintenance facilities range from 10 inches in Hereford to nine inches in Garrett County to 6 inches in Gaithersburg to 3 inches in Salisbury.
