Md. officials pretreating roads in advance of expected snow

WASHINGTON — Officials in Maryland are pre-treating roads in advance of expected snowfall.

The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration said in a statement that central Maryland is expected to see snow Thursday night into early Friday. The State Highway Administration is spraying a brine solution on roads in advance of the snow.

SHA Administrator Gregory C. Johnson said in a statement that the storm is expected to impact Friday morning’s rush hour, which will be a challenge for crews because they become stuck in the same traffic that commuters do.

Johnson asked travelers to delay commuting to let crews effectively treat the roads.
