The state Department of Transportation already has trucks out on the road ahead of the snowfall, which is expected to intensify Thursday night into Friday.

John Carey of the DOT said 75 percent of the department’s crews were on the roads at 6 a.m. and he expected all plow trucks to be out by 8 a.m. Though it’s a long-duration storm, Carey said the plan was to keep drivers available throughout the day, even if snowfall stops.

“The trucks might go off the road later on if the snow dies down but the guys will still be working around the clock until the snow ends,” he said.

Many school districts have called for early dismissals, with some opting to close Thursday.
