D.C. crews ready for light snow Friday
D.C. snow teams will be on duty through Thursday to treat streets, combat possible freezing overnight and tackle the possibility of a light coating of snow for the morning commute.
"This has been a challenging storm to say the least, but our streets are in great shape today," Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D) said in a statement. "I commend the men and women of the Department of Transportation and the Department of Public Works for their efforts around the clock to clear District streets of snow and sleet."
Officials said the city's Urban Forestry Administration also had received more than 300 calls for service related to trees and is still working to clear trees that are blocking roads.
The Capital Weather Gang said the area faces a possibility of accumulating up to a half inch of snow Friday.
In Northern Virginia, the state department of transportation said interstates and main roads have been cleared and crews hoped to have streets in residential neighborhoods passable by the Friday morning rush hour. VDOT's crews would also work overnight to treat roads to in advance of Friday's expect light snow, said spokeswoman Jennifer McCord.
