Area wide Road Conditions
We have received a lot of user requests for general traveler
information during winter storms to compliment our current real-time listings
of counties in
lanes closed due to severe weather.
General travelers advisories will be provided by the
State Highway Administration (SHA) and Maryland Transportation Authority (MdTA)
maintenance shops for the Interstate, Primary and Secondary state highways in
each county. Since the advisories will be updated by the winter storm
personnel out clearing the roads, only state maintained roads (roads with
route number designations (such as MD-32,) roads prefixed with the letter
I (I-95 for example,) and roads prefixed with US (such as US-29) will be
reported on CHART on the Web.
The possible conditions that can be reported are as follows:
The conditions for a specific area will only be displayed if the information
is less than 6 hours old. If an area is not listed, then there are no
current conditions available at this time. The reporting maintenance shops
will be listed by county.
- Dry or Wet - designated in Green
- Isolated Coverage or Overall Coverage - designated in
- Restricted Lanes or Closed - designated in Red
These conditions are to be used for providing Traveler Advisories and general
road conditions to motorists and may change rapidly during storms. The
conditions reported may not always reflect the actual conditions on every
roadway within a shop's reporting area. Motorists are urged to use these
conditions as a guide along with other available information to gauge the
severity of the roadways in their area. Motorists are always advised to use
caution when driving in winter weather events.
There are no current road conditions reported at this time.
