From DPW:

“Mayor Muriel Bowser will deploy more than 200 snow trucks at 2:00 a.m. Wednesday, January 14 for a winter storm that could bring up to an inch of snow and sleet, starting around 4:00 a.m. This will be the District’s third full deployment this winter. All trucks should be on their routes by 3:30 a.m. to begin salting residential and commercial roadways. Temperatures Tuesday night into Wednesday morning will be in the 20sF and rise to a high of 32F Wednesday. The storm is expected to end in the District in the afternoon. Tuesday morning, the Snow Team began pre-treating bridges, ramps and other elevated structures with the brine/beet juice mixture to reduce the chance of freezing.

This storm could affect Wednesday morning’s commute, so whatever the mode of travel, people are asked to be cautious. Property owners are asked to put abrasives (de-icer, rock salt or non-clumping kitty litter) on their sidewalks before the storm starts.

Winter Weather Safety and Preparedness Tips: Motorists are asked to clear all snow from the vehicle first then drive cautiously. Assist elderly or disabled neighbors with clearing their sidewalks. Also, for plow drivers’ safety, “Don’t crowd the plow.” Residents are encouraged to go to snow.dc.gov for updates before, during and after winter storms, and for tips to get one’s home and family prepared for inclement weather. Residents also may sign up at alert.dc.gov to receive emergency alerts and notifications from Alert DC.

The deployment plan is developed and implemented based on predictions made by the weather services; however, predictions may change after the plan has been implemented. Under those circumstances, the District Snow Team will pivot as best as possible to meet the new conditions.

Leaf and holiday tree collections are suspended and will resume after the streets are cleared.

The Department of Public Works will make every effort to follow its trash and recycling collections schedule; however, conditions in some neighborhoods may prevent collections from being made. Residents should hold onto their trash/recycling until the next collection day.”
