 Highway Services is prepared for "wintry mix" and more


Forecasters are calling for a "wintry mix" of possible sleet, freezing rain, or snow flurries this weekend. All such conditions will be handled by Highway Service crews to ensure motorists, transit patrons, bicyclists, and pedestrians can travel as safely as possible.

Recently, Highway Services held its annual Snow Summit. Kicked off by the County Executive, the summit brought together County crews and contractors to review snow removal strategies. This year, the summit was held in the County’s brand new equipment maintenance facility, relocated from its previous location near the Shady Grove Metro as part of the Executive’s Smart Growth Initiative. The new facility features the largest salt barn east of the Mississippi! Highway also held a practice drill for County crews to test their equipment.

The public is reminded of our website map that provides information on any storm. It includes road closures and access to traffic cameras. Access the map and other information from Highway Services' website. Severe storm updates will also be available at the County's homepage. You can also call 311 (TTY, call 301-251-4850), Monday through Friday, 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. should you observe any roadway defects or other maintenance concerns in need of immediate attention throughout the winter months. MC311 will typically extend their hours in the event of a severe storm.
