Storm Leaves Frozen Glaze, But Traffic Improved

Last night’s sleet and snow seems to have pulled off the trick of actually improving traffic.

Right now it’s clear sailing in Arlington on I-395, I-66, Route 1, Route 50 and Columbia Pike. Traffic volume has remained light and no major problems are reported.

Many side streets are still covered in a thin frozen glaze, but are passable.

The storm, which left less than an inch of accumulation, prompted Arlington Public Schools to open on a two-hour delay. The county and federal governments are open with an option for unscheduled leave or telework.
