With more snow and ice predicted for overnight, District officials are getting the salt trucks ready and warning commuters about Tuesday morning's commute.
The forecast isn’t calling for much, so no Snowmageddon the Sequel. The National Weather Service forecasts a chance of snow, possibly turning to sleet or freezing rain overnight with no more accumulation than about 1 inch.
But that could mean for a messy commute on Tuesday as the world returns to work after a long weekend.
The District Department of Transportation plans to deploy almost 200 trucks by 9 p.m.
Crews are already pretreating bridges, ramps and overpasses. And the city says they'll work through the morning, if necessary.
The city also urges residents and businesses to apply salt, sand or kitty litter-type abrasives on sidewalks. Commuters should take care whether walking, biking or driving, they say.
