Most Maryland highways clear, ice on ramps remains a concern, officials say

The Maryland State Highway Administration had plowed most of the region's highways "down to the pavement" by Monday morning, spokesman Bob Rager said.

Crews returned Monday to remove what's left from the shoulder lanes, either pushing it off the side of the highways or removing it with construction equipment and taking it to specified unloading areas, Rager said.

Rager warned that ice patches remain from melting snow, and that light traffic due to many businesses and schools being closed can result in people driving faster than they should. He said drivers should watch out for ramps and merging lanes that may not be fully cleared of snow and ice.

"We had a good day yesterday with the sunshine," he said. "We're certainly not out of the woods yet. ... For the next one to three days, keep an eye on the ramps, in particular."
