Crews clearing snow, abandoned cars from roads
Question of the Day
WASHINGTON (AP) — Transportation officials in the mid-Atlantic region are working to remove dozens of abandoned cars and tractor-trailers left by motorists who spent hours trying to make it home during the height of a snowstorm.
Maryland State Highway Administration spokeswoman Kim Frum says crews are plowing around abandoned vehicles and getting tow trucks to move them. She says she has heard stories of motorists stuck for hours, and added that plows were stuck in the same backups.
In Washington, Department of Transportation spokesman John Lisle says after the challenging evening commute, the District’s roads were looking better Thursday morning.
Meanwhile, Metro has resumed service along main roads after pulling buses off the road late Wednesday when they became to difficult to navigate.
