Information on Road Conditions --
When road conditions are "green," the roads are dry, and normal driving conditions and government-authorized dispatch procedures apply.
"Amber" means use caution. Normal dispatch procedures apply, but roads may be slippery due to rain, snow or ice.
"Red" indicates hazardous driving conditions. Officials urge no unnecessary travel, since roads are covered with ice or hard-packed snow, and visibility is limited. Tire chains are recommended for all series of vehicles authorized to use them under "red" conditions, and dispatches must be authorized and signed by the commander or director.
"Black" denotes extremely dangerous and even life-threatening conditions. Heavy snow, high winds and zero visibility may leave some roads completely unplowed. Only emergency vehicles and traffic associated with national defense are allowed on the roads.
Joint Base Myer - Henderson Hall (JBM-HH) includes Fort Myer, Henderson Hall and Fort McNair.
