Commuters will face uncertainty Monday

By Washington Post Editors

UPDATE: The federal government and many local jurisdictions will be closed on Monday as the region struggles with digging out from the weekend's record snowfall.

That's a good thing because commuters will face uncertainty, from whether some services will even be available to huge amounts of snow and ice that will persist in some areas, making conditions dangerous for motorists, public transportation and even pedestrians.

The Get There blog has the breakdown of what to expect.

Metro is suspending the limited service that had been operating Sunday because of ice on the roads, the agency said in a news release.

Officials will reevaluate conditions Monday morning, but Metro said commuters should expect very limited bus and MetroAccess service because of icy roads. MetroAccess service Monday will be limited to ¾ of a mile from all bus routes that are operating, and MetroAccess customers will be contacted if their trips will be cancelled, officials said.
