A second burst of snow in three days is forecast Tuesday, potentially lengthening the weekend for schoolchildren one more day and clouding the morning commute. Several inches of snow, with smaller chances of half a foot or slightly more, are forecast over a few hours starting after daybreak. Forecasters and transportation officials cautioned that snow could accumulate at rates of an inch or two per hour, faster than snowplows can keep up with, in the midst of rush hour. If that is the case, officials urged drivers to delay travel or risk getting stuck.

The National Weather Service is forecasting another 3-5 inches of snow Tuesday on top of the wet, slushy blanket left over from Sunday's storm. Accumulations of 2-4 inches are most likely across the Baltimore area, according to forecast maps from the National Weather Service updated Monday afternoon, with the possibility for isolated higher amounts. Snow is expected to start around daybreak and could be intense during the morning rush hour. Snow could fall at a rate of 1-2 inches per hour for a two- to four-hour window between daybreak and mid- to late morning.

Traffic in the Ruxton area of Baltimore County was disrupted on Thursday morning because of a water main problem, State Highway Administration officials said. SHA spokesman David Buck said that a water main problem along Old Court Road between Falls Road and Stone Mill Road forced the close of the westbound side of the road. Buck said that traffic is being alternated on the eastbound side.

Highway crews are scheduled to complete work Monday night on a temporary patch of eastbound U.S. 50 that was buckled by 11 days of intense heat. A 50-foot-long crack squiggled across three left lanes near U.S. 301 in Prince George's County on Sunday afternoon, forcing officials to shut down all but the right lane and the shoulder to motorists. The break lifted one slab of concrete and reduced another piece to rubble. "It was less dramatic than it sounds, but clearly, we had to take traffic off of it," said David Buck, spokesman for the State Highway Administration.

Two beams on the southbound Interstate 95 bridge spanning the Baltimore Beltway will need to be replaced following Monday afternoon's crash involving an oversized piece of construction equipment. Engineers conducted structural tests overnight and determined that two of three beams over the shoulder of the interstate were damaged by the arm of an excavator being hauled from a nearby construction site, David Buck, spokesman for the State Highway Administration, said Tuesday. "The exterior beam is going to be replaced, probably next spring, there's no doubt about it," Buck said.

The State Highway Administration will more than double the number of parking spots at the Davidsonville Park and Ride lot, a move officials say is a response to increased demand. Plans call for adding 240 spaces to the 210 now there. Construction, likely to start next summer, is expected to be completed next fall, said SHA spokesman David Buck. Some days the free lot — on Route 424 off U.S. 50 — is so full that drivers who don't find a space leave vehicles lined up along the lot's inner curbs and grassy islands.

Grout used to protect steel support cables in the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, which carries Interstate 95 over the Potomac River, may be contaminated with an excessive level of chloride, a corroding substance known to accelerate rusting. The Federal Highway Administration warned 21 states — including Maryland — that as many as three dozen bridges were built with possibly defective grout manufactured in Ohio between November 2002 and March 2010. Chloride-contaminated grout was blamed in the collapse of a pedestrian walkway at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C. in 2000, injuring more than 100 fans.

Maryland Live Casino's opening night drew such a crowd that thousands didn't make it inside before the doors closed early Thursday morning, and traffic slowed to a crawl for miles on nearby highways. State officials warned motorists to brace for delays in the coming days, both on site at the Arundel Mills complex in Hanover and on nearby roads, particularly Routes 100 and 295. But the State Highway Administration said the short window that the casino opened to the public Wednesday into Thursday — 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. — intensified the gridlock.
