The Massachusetts Department of Transportation is advising the public to plan ahead and monitor conditions with winter weather expected throughout the Commonwealth. Travelers should be mindful of impacts due to weather winter conditions and make safe, smart decisions if it is necessary to be on the roadways.
Additionally, forecasters are predicting an upcoming storm that has the potential to bring a mixture of precipitation from Sunday evening through Monday, March 4. Members of the public should monitor the weather forecast and recognize that this weather event could impact the Monday morning commute and create challenging travel conditions.
“Our snow and ice crews are closely watching the weather forecast and planning upcoming deployments of plows and other equipment,” said MassDOT Highway Administrator Jonathan Gulliver. “We encourage anyone who will be traveling throughout the weekend to check roadway conditions and weather forecasts before getting behind the wheel, and exercise safe driving behavior at all times including reducing speeds and giving plenty of space to plows and other vehicles.”
If drivers go out on the roadways, they are advised to always wear seatbelts, minimize distractions, turn off or put away cell-phones and devote full attention to what is ahead on the road.
