SALEM DISTRICT: CREWS WORKING ON SECONDARY ROADS AND NEIGHBORHOOD STREETS
SALEM– Warm temperatures and the efforts of snow plow drivers have improved road conditions throughout western Virginia. Most primary routes (those numbered 1-599) and all interstates (I-77, I-81 and I-581) are in minor condition, which means they are mostly clear with isolated slick spots.
With snowfall in southwest Virginia expected to begin before dawn this morning and continue into the evening, the Virginia Department of Transportation is encouraging drivers to avoid unnecessary travel today until after the storm passes and road conditions improve.
Road conditions could change as wet roads freeze and more precipitation moves through
SALEM – Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews across the state have been mobilized today to treat roads as a wintry mix of precipitation has been affecting travel.
Most roads in VDOT’s Salem District are currently in clear or minor condition, which means they are mostly wet with isolated slick spots.
