Pr. Geo.'s main roads said to be passable

By Miranda S. Spivack

Prince George's expects to make about two-thirds of its secondary roads passable by about noon Thursday, said public works spokeswoman Susan Hubbard.

Primary roads were passable by about 5 a.m., she said. "Our problems have been people abandoning cars, and downed wires and downed trees," she said.

The county has 5,000 lane miles. Most are in relatively good shape, Hubbard said.

On Wednesday, the county had about 60 trucks out during the day, salting and then plowing about 4 p.m. when the snow began in earnest. Today, there are 178 county vehicles out clearing the roads and 101 contractors vehicles.
