By authority of the Maryland State Police, Cumberland Barrack, the Snow Emergency Plan for Allegany County was placed into effect on Monday at 16:30pm.
This action was taken because of hazardous driving conditions caused by snow and/or ice covered roads.
When the “Plan” is in effect, all vehicles operating on designated Snow Emergency Routes must have chains, snow tires, or all-season radial tires. Any vehicle parked on a Snow Emergency Route when the “Plan” is in effect is subject to being towed, and the owner may be fined.
