WASHINGTON — Transportation officials are warning residents of the mid-Atlantic region to think ahead to avoid traffic jams during a snowy evening commute.
The National Weather Service has posted a winter storm watch for late Monday through Tuesday night for north central and northeast Maryland.
Maryland State Highway Administration spokesman David Buck says crews were out pretreating roads on Sunday ahead of the storm that is set to arrive late Monday. Buck says if the storm moves in earlier than expected it could have a major impact on the roads during rush hour.
Virginia Department of Transportation spokeswoman Jennifer McCord tells WTOP-FM that crews have been pretreating roads and trucks will be out Monday night into Tuesday. Still, she says people should plan for a longer commute on Monday evening.
