With more snow expected in our area over the weekend, the Virginia Department of Transportation is working to make the roads safe.
Full crews are monitoring road conditions throughout Saturday as long as bad weather exists.
If snow does fall in our area, trucks will be loaded with salt and sand to plow roads.
Crews will plow heavy traveled roads and interstates first, and then move to secondary roads in the area.
VDOT says it's best to stay off the roads.
"Somebody has an incident on the road, it's makes it more difficult to plow around cars or trucks that may be on the road due to the incident," said Marshall Barnhill, communications specialist for VDOT. "It's also safer for everyone. So if people can stay off the roads until the weather event has passed and the roads are clear and safe to drive, that's probably the best piece of advice I can give."
VDOT says they work to make sure all roads are passable within 48 hours after a weather event has ended.
If you would like to get your neighborhood roads plowed, call 1-800-367-7623.
