A forecast of dangerous road conditions has crews across the region racing to treat streets.
In Northern Virginia, 400 trucks have been on the roads since midnight treating them with magnesium chloride and brine to prevent icing. Joan Morris is with Virginia's Department of Transportation.
"And it sounds like we could get hit again with refreezing conditions so it looks like we're going to have crews out on Thursday night and maybe new year's day as well," says Morris.
They're targeting main roads first, subdivisions last. Maryland has had crews out since yesterday and says they'll still be out tomorrow too. Randy Paugh is with Maryland's Department of Transportation.
"Oh absolutely we will not go home until those roads are safe," says Paugh.
In D.C., crews are continuing to make sure bridges and overpasses are treated. Metro meanwhile is de-icing it's above ground rails and treating the ground around entrances to stations.
