MoCo: Crews focused on main roads

Airports | Amtrak | Buses | Capital Weather Gang | D.C. snow emergency | Plowing plans | Rails | Snow removal | Live traffic

Montgomery County officials said Sunday that snow plows won't even begin tackling most neighborhood streets until Monday.

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation is currently plowing and treating primary and secondary roads and expects to complete that work by Sunday night.

The crews will begin plowing neighborhoods streets Monday. Officials said the plan is for plows to make one pass and then return to finish the job later.

They're not doing nearly as good a job as they did in December, but some major roads like 355 and Shady Grove are looking pretty good.

Things in Bethesda are pretty ridiculous. I skied down to Rock Creek Park yesterday, and I went through the Alta Vista/Maplewood neighborhood. About half of the residential streets there were plowed down to the asphalt. Our street, by contrast, has not been touched. If I could drive the distance of 6 houses, I could get out to bigger plowed roads, but I can't. Why Alta Vista/Maplewood got such service, I have no idea.
