MassDOT this morning has crews now working statewide to clear state roadways.  As of 4:00am, 3,856 pieces of equipment were at work, representing more than 750 MassDOT employees and hired crews.

Approximately 4,000 pieces of equipment are available to treat and clear state roads during this major winter storm.  

Moderate to Heavy snow has fallen in the past few hours in nearly all areas of the Commonwealth. The State Police MSP has lowered the speed limit on Route I-90 to 40 MPH and closed the road to tandems and propane.  The MEMA Emergency Bunker was activated at 3:00am with MassDOT representatives on hand to respond to the storm. 

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

We invite you to review MassDOT’s winter driving tips
