Lessons Learned: Road Crews Prepped and Ready?
On my drive around the area this morning, including the Beltway and I-66, I saw numerous sand and salt trucks prepped and ready to go -- around overpasses, on ramps, and other road surfaces in Northern Virginia. Heck, the Virginia Department of Transportation center on I-495 near Springfield practically had a convoy waiting outside.
Anyone else notice this increased presence this morning? Maybe area jurisdictions are feeling the heat for the debacle that was last week's ice storm. What did you see this morning? Who (in your opinion) does a better job of keeping the streets cleared and safe? Virginia? Maryland? The District? Who has made the biggest blunders?
