VDOT continues to treat our roads and can use our help

An email from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) confirms that roads are being treated until they are safe and clear of snow and ice.

As of 4 a.m. main roads were already listed as in minor condition.

Minor condition means that patches of ice may still exist.

Secondary roads are the main concern currently and are listed as in moderate conditions.

Moderate means there is more snow and ice covering some portions of the road.

VDOT is asking that you not park on the side or secondary roads so a more thorough job can be preformed on those roads.

The high winds can also cause the snow to drift and cause slick spots across roads as well which is something to be aware of when traveling.

Up to the minute information so you will know before you go is found at 511virginia.org.

You may not have to go with all the latest closings and cancellations found here.
