VDOT to clear path for holiday travelers

RICHMOND The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will remove temporary work zones on major roads to provide a clear path for holiday travelers to reach their destinations over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. While thousands of motorists are making holiday travel plans, VDOT is keeping an eye on winter weather forecasted to impact the commonwealth the weekend of Dec. 24-26. Crews are readying equipment and preparing to work through the holiday if needed to keep drivers safe on Virginia’s roadways.

VDOT Crews Battle Winter Weather

HAMPTON ROADS— As snow blankets the region, crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) are out in force applying abrasives on interstates, and state maintained primaries and high volume secondary routes. Road conditions are deteriorating and in the western portions of Hampton Roads, are snow covered.

VDOT crews continue to apply abrasives on area roadways

HAMPTON ROADS — The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) continues to apply both salt and sand to state maintained roadways.  Motorists are urged to use caution while traveling throughout the day.  Overpasses, bridges and ramps may be slippery due to precipitation.   VDOT crews throughout the region and in the rural areas began applying abrasives in the early morning hours.  Where accumulation has occurred, particularly in the rural counties of James City, York, Isle of Wight, Sussex, Greenville and Southampton, crews have removed snow from the primary roadways.
