BOSTON, Mass. (WWLP) – Governor Charlie Baker provided an update Thursday night on the state’s snow clean-up plan.

The Governor said, “While the snow begins to taper off this evening, remains plenty of work to do, need to proceed with caution. Please continues to stay off the road tonight and allow space to prepare for tomorrow’s commute.”
