A bulldozer moves salt from D.C.'s salt dome in Northeast Washington on Friday onto trucks, which then disperse it on streets throughout the city.
There's a 40 percent chance of snow flurries overnight and into Saturday morning, not much accumulation is expected, but with cold temperatures, even a little snow could make some roads slick. The District's Department of Transportation says it will be ready if more snow falls.
A forklift transfers large mounds of salt out of the citys massive salt dome in Northeast Washington onto one of hundreds of trucks that set out at 3 a.m. Friday morning to treat 1,100 miles of roads in the District.
Although the predicted light snow largely seemed to miss the area Friday, that may not be the case this weekend.
DDOT says it will be devising a plan Friday to deal with any possible flurries on Saturday. They say if snowfall does occur over the weekend, they'll be ready with a full or partial deployment of salt trucks to treat roads. They say they'll likely need to add additional salt to areas already treated Friday.
