Governor Hogan Thanks MDOT Crews Responding to Winter Weather

February 18th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Governor Larry Hogan today issued a message to thank Maryland Department of Transportation crews and first responders for their diligence and dedication during this particularly busy winter season.

Wintry precipitation continues to fall across the state. According to the National Weather Service, lingering snow, sleet, and freezing rain will continue into the afternoon and overnight, likely to cause significant icing.

MDOT SHA forces are fully operational, with more than 1,000 personnel and nearly 2,000 pieces of equipment responding. 

As hazardous conditions are reported across the state, transportation officials are asking Marylanders to stay off of roadways to the extent possible. Motorists who must travel are reminded to clear their cars completely before driving, reduce their speed, and give snow plows plenty of room to operate.
