Traffic Winter A winter storm warning is posted by the National Weather Service for southeastern, northeastern, and central Massachusetts including metro Boston through Thursday morning, January 27.

Heavy snow is expected overnight in advance of the Thursday morning commute, and MassDOT will be treating roadways in advance of the storm and have snow and ice crews ready to clear roads during and after the snow event.

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 Thursday.

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

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