LARGO, MD – Prince George’s County crews are once again preparing for the forecast of light snow for the Washington Metropolitan area.  The Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) will deploy crews early Tuesday morning to monitor and treat the primary and major collector roadways as needed and then move into the residential areas.  Crews will also be monitoring and treating the bridges, cold spots, ramps and intersections to ensure they are free of icy conditions.

“Weather forecasters are predicting snow in our area to begin early Tuesday morning with a possible accumulation of 1-2 inches on the grassy areas and a slushy coating on the roadways,” said DPW&T Director Darrell Mobley.  “With the temperatures dropping below freezing late Tuesday night, the roadways may become icy.  Motorists are asked to use caution when driving during the morning commute.”

To report roadway conditions, residents are encouraged wait 12 hours after the precipitation has stopped to call CountyClick at 311 or to submit the information online at
