Date Released: 
Fri, 02/16/2018

(WASHINGTON, DC) – The DC Snow Team will be pretreating the District’s primary, secondary and National Highway System routes this evening starting at 8 p.m. with anti-icing liquid brine in advance of Saturday’s forecasted blend of snow, freezing rain, and sleet. The National Weather Service is forecasting a wintry mix that will begin Saturday afternoon and last late into the evening. In addition to the pre-storm anti-icing operation, the DC Snow Team will be monitoring the storm throughout the weekend and is prepared to treat roads with rock salt should it be necessary.
