HANCOCK, Md. (AP) — Highway officials are treating roads in western Maryland in anticipation of a possible winter storm that could affect parts of the state.

The state Highway Administration said Saturday that crews also are monitoring roads for icy patches and are preparing for the possibility of snow, sleet or freezing rain.

Officials are urging particular caution for drivers heading west along I-70 through Hancock or on I-68 past Sideling Hill.

The state says snow emergency plans are in effect in Allegany, Washington and Garrett counties.

The Maryland Transit Administration says it’s relying on additional operators to back up buses, Light Rail and Metro operations.
