Traffic Winter A full contingent of MassDOT employee and hired snow and ice crews are continuing plowing operations at midday with moderate snow reported in most areas.  A total of 3732 pieces of equipment are now deployed statewide representing hired crews and more than 700 MassDOT employees.

Snow accumulation average reports range from 4 inches in western Massachusetts to 5.5 inches in central and northeast Massachusetts. 

MassDOT has approximately 4,000 pieces of equipment available to treat and clear state roads in winter storm events.  Crews were out early this morning treating roadways in advance of the fast-moving snow and will be clearing roads during the afternoon following the snow's exit prior to the evening commute.

As always, before traveling we invite you to check our online traffic cameras for live conditions on major roadways: www.mass.gov/511/cameras
