Arlington Crews on Snow Alert

Salt truck (file photo)Arlington snow crews are getting ready for what might be the county’s first measurable snowfall of 2015.

Forecasters say the area could get 1-2 inches of snow Tuesday morning. The timing of the storm might make the morning commute miserable.

Arlington County crews have started pre-treating roads and bike trails with brine, as part of a “Phase 1: Alert” snow removal status.

“Snow crews will start spreading brine on arterial streets today and then go into residential areas,” according to Dept. of Environmental Services spokeswoman Jessica Baxter. “Crews are also hooking up all of the plows today to be prepared to salt early tomorrow morning. This is all subject to change with the weather conditions.”
