With snow and sleet forecast even as Spring begins officially later this week, drivers should remember to take it slow on snow and slush covered roadways and watch for icy patches especially on ramps and bridges.
MassDOT remains ready to call in more than 4,000 pieces of equipment to clear our state highways.
Drivers should take steps to remove all snow and ice from their windows and to drive with their headlights on when heading out in the morning.
As traffic volume increases and speeds decrease during the morning rush, plows become less efficient. The best roadway conditions are behind the plow line.
