VDOT’s crews are working to keep roadways clear through the snowstorm.

Snowfall and strong winds will affect visibility.

Below freezing temperatures will create icey patches that may last throughout the weekend.

Wind and ice accumulation may result in branches or trees falling into roadways.

Crews will be ready in impacted areas to start plowing if needed and spreading sand and salt to increase traction.

If possible, avoid traveling until precipitation stops but if you must travel, check 511Virginia.org for the latest road conditions before you leave.
