VDOT issues an advisory for today 1/10

new bridges shenandoah county

An email from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is once again this morning Jan. 10 warning drivers to drive with caution.

VDOT crews continue to treat icy spots on roads across the state with salt and ice melt and will do so until roads are deemed safe.

Caution is advised and monitoring roads at 511virginia.org before departure is prudent before temperatures rise to help melt the ice.

However temperatures today are not projected to be much higher then freezing so ice is likely to continue to be a problem especially in shady spots, overpasses and bridges.

You can report hazardous road conditions at VDOT’s Customer Service Center at 1-800-FOR-ROADS (800-367-7623) or visit my.vdot.virginia.gov.

In the meantime allow plenty of room between vehicles, break lightly and don’t pass snowplows.

Traffic Update

The Virginia Department of Transportation is advising motorists to stay on the lookout for icy spots throughout the Shenandoah Valley.

Some areas may have refrozen throughout the night.

Pay special attention to bridges and overpasses.

VDOT continued to treat the roads through last night as needed.

All major interstates through the area were reported clear but minor to moderate winter weather road conditions can still be found on primary and secondary roads throughout the surrounding counties.
