VDOT has pre-treated area interstates and will continue to treat area bridges and overpasses with an anti-icing agent.

Crews will continue monitoring and applying abrasives on state maintained roads as needed.

Even when roads have been treated, motorists should reduce their speed and leave at least a five second driving distance between vehicles.
