The Highway Division is tasked with the planning, designing, constructing, and maintaining over 15,975 lane miles of roadway and more than 4,950 bridges. The winter season in Massachusetts brings with it the special challenge of maintaining reasonably safe roadway conditions for drivers during and after snow and ice events. The operation involves pre-season planning, training, teamwork, and a significant effort from equipment operators and support personnel.
Winter presents challenges even for the most experienced drivers. Please assist in our operations by being mindful of road conditions, not crowding the plows and other operations vehicles, and maintaining a safe speed and control of your vehicle.
