Snow Emergency Plan for Cecil County in effect 11/15/2018

(NORTH EAST, MD)  On November 15, 2018 the Maryland State Police North East Barrack in conjunction with the Maryland State Highway Administration has put the Snow Emergency Plan into effect as of 11:15 AM for Cecil County.

Once a snow emergency is declared, the law requires certain precautions. They include:

  • Prohibited parking on roads and streets designated as snow emergency routes; and
  • The use of snow tires/chains (most cars now use all weather tires, so changing to “snow” tires is unnecessary);

Once an emergency is in effect, all requirements are in effect until lifted.   A Snow Emergency Plan is put into effect per county.
