State roads get pass for evening peak
Dire predictions that central Maryland could be socked with a snowstorm at the peak of the evening rush hour don't seem to be materializing. A survey of state traffic cameras around the state show no signs of anything more serious than flurries except in the mountain of Western Maryland, and even there we're seeing only a modest accumulation.
Traffic appears to be moving briskly in most of the places surveyed -- including locations in the Baltimore and Washington regions, on the Eastern Shore and in Frederick County. Only the troublesome Thomas Johnson Bridge in Southern Maryland was backed up, and that did not appear too have anything to do with snow.
Of course, the predicted storm could still bedevil overnight travelers and cause problems that linger into the morning peak travel time, but conditions now hardly seem to justify panic runs to the grocery store.
