From the Mayor’s office:

“Pedestrians and motorists are urged to travel with caution. Property owners are asked to apply abrasives to sidewalks prior to storm’s start.

Mayor Muriel Bowser has directed the DC Snow Team to go into a full deployment Monday, January 12. The District will deploy more than 200 plows by 3:00 a.m., based on predictions of a mix of freezing rain/sleet and rain mixed with sleet and temperatures between 30°F and 33°F early Monday morning. Temperatures are expected to rise above freezing Monday afternoon to
38°F-41°F.

Freezing rain can leave a coating of ice on roadways and sidewalks, so the Snow Team will apply salt to roadways. Property owners are asked to put abrasives (deicer, rock salt or non-clumping kitty litter) on their sidewalks before the storm starts.

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.

DPW 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.”
