Crews to Treat Roads Ahead of Winter Storm in Mid-Atlantic

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP)- Road crews are being deployed to treat city streets and highways ahead of two winter storms approaching the mid-Atlantic region.

District of Columbia officials say they are deploying snow trucks Friday afternoon and evening. A wintry mix of snow and rain may begin Friday and continue through Saturday. Snow trucks will be deployed again Sunday night for another winter storm that could affect the commute early Monday.

Forecasters expect snow will be heaviest in western Maryland and to the north.

The Maryland State Highway Administration is warning motorists that travel may become hazardous. The agency says it's preparing for the storms with salt and plows to treat the roads.

The Maryland Transit Administration says it is working to keep buses, trains and cars moving this weekend during the winter weather. 

Baltimore and Washington were expected to get only rain as temperatures hover just above freezing.
