Governor Deval Patrick and Secretary Jeff Mullan this afternoon joined Emergency Management and State Police officials in urging Commonwealth residents to prepare for the winter storm now entering Massachusetts.  

The Governor urged motorists to complete travel by 3pm today whenever possible.  Secretary Mullan called the expected storm a "significant event" and said traffic volumes are higher than normal for a typical Sunday early afternoon and urged those who must travel to plan ahead and expect delays.  Mullan said the MBTA will provide regular Sunday service and regular Monday service during the storm.  

MassDOT as of early Sunday afternoon has more than 1,000 pieces of equipment treating and clearing roads, with a total of more than 4,000 pieces of equipment ready to address roads throughout the snow period.  

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