Traffic Cameras 2 A winter storm warning is now posted by the National Weather Service for eastern and central Massachusetts for portions of Friday, January 21.

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.

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