County road crews will hit the streets starting at 8 tonight, according to a news release. Crews will concentrate on the primary and major collector roadways first, and then will move into the residential areas to plow and treat the roads.

“Weather forecasters are predicting rain beginning Sunday evening and changing to snow Sunday night,” said Darrell Mobley, director of the Department of Public Works and Transportation. “Roadway conditions may become hazardous, and motorists are encouraged to use caution.”

Drivers are advised to drive safely and to remember these safety tips:

  • Add extra time for travel;
  • Keep a safe distance between your car and the car in front of you;
  • Do not follow the snow plow trucks; and
  • Use caution when driving over bridges, ramps and overpasses.

County residents are asked to park on the even-numbered sides of residential streets or in their driveways to assist the crews in clearing the roadways. Final plowing on residential roadways will not occur until after the snow ends. Driveways and mailboxes will have snow in front of them as a result of the plowing operation. Residents are reminded to shovel their driveways after plowing has occurred and to remove snow from the sidewalks abutting their homes and businesses. 

To report roadway conditions, residents are asked to wait 12 hours after the precipitation has stopped before calling CountyClick at 3-1-1 or the Snow Information Center at 301-350-0500. For updates and information, visit the county’s website at http://www.princegeorgescountymd.gov.
