State of Emergency Lifted, Some Roads Still Snow-Covered

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A few remaining roadways are still snow-covered.

Mike Hellgren has more on the cleanup still left to do.

In Howard County, state highway crews are pushing iced-over snow off the shoulder.

The governor has lifted the state of emergency in Maryland, yet it’s still tough to get around.

“A lot of lanes are still blocked. Even thought the roads are clear that third lane might still be blocked,” said Cindy Dwyer.

On I-95, you can see one of the brief, intense snow showers as it moved through.

Sky Eye Chopper 13 even captured them in the distance above Baltimore County.

“I looked out the window and I said, ‘Oh, snow flurries!’ Then it stopped right away,” said Erica Ross.

In Anne Arundel County, like most everywhere else, there are big piles of snow.

Some sidewalks remain uncleared. Some cars have not yet been moved in the subdivision near Arundel Mills, the snow mounds are huge.

In Baltimore City, big equipment is clearing extra lanes, although many streets remain narrow.

“This is abominable. This is shameful,” said Kamala Maxwell, of Baltimore.

And after sharing their frustrations, 24 hours ago, people on Old Frederick Road, finally got their street plowed.

Business owners are happy that it’s much easier to get around.

From Harford County to Ellicott City, Maryland is moving again — when just one week ago, we were in the bullseye of the blizzard.

Maryland Transportation officials say the amount of snow cleared from the I-95 Express Toll lanes in Baltimore is 40 times the volume of the Goodyear Blimp
