Snow Equipment, Western Mass, January 21, 2011 With the first of two rounds of winter weather over the next two days now affecting Massachusetts, MassDOT snow and ice operations are ongoing.  Crews began pretreating roadways early this morning and as of mid-morning began plowing operations to clear state roadways in time for Tuesday's evening commute.

As of midday, moderate to heavy snow continued, with some transition to freezing rain in parts of southeastern Massachusetts.  MassDOT already has more than 3,800 pieces of equipment and more than 730 MassDOT employees working to clear roadways.

MassDOT has approximately 4,000 pieces of equipment available to treat and clear state roads in the event of a major winter storm.

As always, MassDOT urges everyone to check before traveling, drive safely and cautiously, and use public transportation where possible.

Some MBTA bus routes are diverted and stops affected due to slipper conditions today and tomorrow during the storms.  Visit the MBTA online  for the latest schedules and service advisories.

Before you drive, please check our online traffic cameras for live conditions on major roadways: www.mass.gov/511/cameras

We invite you to review MassDOT’s winter driving tips.
