Crews Keep Roads Clear After Second Round Of Winter Weather
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Maryland got a second round of snowy weather on Tuesday, keeping road crews busy.
Kai Jackson has more.
A state highway plow train moved in unison to attack the slick roads and WJZ crews captured video of traffic on I-695 during the morning rush hour.
“It’s nice. It’s been a winter wonderland right here in December,” said Jeffrey Nelson.
The powerful system quickly rolled into the state and blanketed some area roads and side streets, like one in Rodgers Forge.
The second layer of snow that followed Sunday’s storm forced residents outside, but for many it wasn’t a snow day. It was work to clear the snow, then go to work.
The city got a break from the dumping seen in suburban Baltimore but crews still salted and they plowed just the same.
“Well, I love the snow. It’s absolutely beautiful. I just don’t wanna drive anywhere in it,” said Janet Dent.
In Carroll County, residents were faced with power outages from the storm. For many, that meant no heat or electricity, but crews worked around the clock to fix the outages.
“They’ve been out in the field all day today making great progress with putting these customers back into service,” said Rachel Lighty, BGE.
