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.

    Check the calendar…. Congress is out of session. Traffic always correlates to the Congressional calendar.

      Not always, but recess does help.

    Best Commute Ever. Schools should always start 2 hours late.

    The walk from my bedroom to home office was easy this morning.

    I know Arlington said they “pre-treated” the roads, but I didn’t want to chance it, as I know to take that with a giant grain of salt.
