As D.C. experiences what could be its worst snow storm in more than 25 years, the District Department of Transportation is worried about keeping its staff safe.
DDOT has deployed more than 300 snow plows and salt trucks so far. The agency's director, Gabe Klein, says they'll probably have to run four or five back-to-back shifts to combat the storm.
"Because we don't know how bad it's gonna get, we have reserved lodging for our staff here in the city so they don't have to leave, as well as extra food and supplies for them," says Klein. "So we're trying to make it as easy on them as possible so we can continue the efforts non-stop for 48-plus hours."
Klein says they hope to have everything cleaned up by Monday morning rush hour.
