BALTIMORE (WJZ) – The Baltimore City Department of Transportation confirmed 380 vehicles were sent in to clear and handle the roads following winter weather that brought 3 to 5 inches of snow Monday morning.
The heaviest snowfall began to fall shortly after sunrise, especially in Annapolis and areas south of Baltimore.
After the snow stopped around 1 p.m., city teams began making side trips through certain areas of the City of Baltimore. A strategic salting is being used to avoid snow melt on Tuesday, which could cause black ice.

The City of Baltimore’s DOT agency confirmed there are no plans to reduce workloads or staff.
At a news conference, Mayor Brandon Scott said treatments are taking place on a variety of roads, bike lanes and highways. However, city leaders cautioned against driving on routes like I-83 and the Hilton Parkway that risk worsening road conditions at night.
