With a fast-moving winter storm expected to reach eastern Massachusetts in time for the Friday morning commute, MassDOT will be ready as always with snow and ice crews in place.
MassDOT has approximately 4,000 pieces of equipment available to treat and clear state roads in the event of a major winter storm.
Crews will be activated statewide in advance of the snow, treating roadways.
Avoid travel if possible during the most significant part of the storm during early morning hours to allow MassDOT crews to clear roads for travel later in the day Friday.
As always, MassDOT urges everyone to check before traveling, drive safely and cautiously, and use public transportation where possible.
Review MassDOT’s winter driving tips are available on the web.
