DC plans to deploy over 200 plows on streets ahead of snow

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials in Washington say they will have more than 200 plows on city streets ahead of expected snow.

Officials say the plows will be on the streets Tuesday by 8 a.m.

The head of the Department of Public Works, William O. Howland Jr., says crew applied a solution of brine and beet juice to bridges and other elevated structures on Monday to reduce the possibility of ice forming. He says that once snow starts falling crews will spread salt until enough snow accumulates to require plowing.

The National Weather Service says the city could see up to six inches of snow.
