VDOT ready for Hurricane Ian

Traffic Update

The Virginia Department of Transportation has made statewide preparations for Hurricane Ian.

They anticipate the storm to bring high winds and heavy rain that could down trees and powerlines or result in debris or flooding that would make roadways hazardous.

In preparation for the storm, crews inspected and cleaned drainage structures.

During the storm, they will monitor wind speeds in critical areas like bridges and address inoperable or downed traffic signals.

Travelers should obey road closure signs, be alert for debris, watch for high winds effects on tall vehicles like tractor trailers or box trucks, and remember “turn around, don’t drown” if you see flooded roadways.
