      DC Snow Team Goes Into Full Deployment Wed., Feb. 8

       

      DC rush hour to begin today at 1 pm to promote smooth traffic flow as snow is falling.

       

      The full DC Snow Team is deploying today, applying salt to major roadways and residential streets, as needed.  The District also will move rush-hour traffic signal timing up to begin at 1 pm to facilitate the movement of traffic as employees leave work earlier to reach their destination before conditions can hamper travel.

       

      The weather forecast is for rain and snow, becoming all snow after 4pm and a high temperature near 41F.  Less than half an inch of snow is predicted to fall during the day, but snow is likely to continue falling until 9 pm tonight and perhaps another half inch of snow is possible.

      The District Snow Team had more than 180 plows on their routes at 11 am today.  These crews will work through the night, into tomorrow morning’s rush hour.

       

      Motorists are reminded to drive carefully on wet roadways and give the snow plows ample room to work.  Other safety tips for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists can be found at www.snow.dc.gov.
