Winter Storm, Plows, February 8, 2013Winter presents challenges even for the most experienced drivers. Motorists are encouraged to drive with caution and plan ahead based upon weather conditions as up to 4,000 MassDOT Highway Division Snow and Ice Removal crews respond as needed across the 15,975 lane miles of state roadway and more than 4,950 bridges.

The Snow and Ice Removal operation involves pre-season planning, training, teamwork, and 24-hour response from equipment operators and support personnel.

Please assist our operations by being mindful of road conditions, not crowding the plows and other operations vehicles, and maintaining a safe speed and control of your vehicle.
