Hampton Roads, Va. – With snow in the forecast beginning late tonight and continuing into Tuesday morning, VDOT is warning Virginian drivers to be alert and ready when heading out the door.
VDOT crews will be mobilized throughout the state by midnight tonight and treat roads as accumulation develops. However anti-icing will not take place on most roadways due to rain occurring prior to the snowfall.
If travel plans can’t be changed, it is highly advised that drivers drive slowly and keep a safe distance from other drivers.
When encountering snow plows or any other slow-moving equipment, motorists must slow down and allow the operators the right of way.
Road hazards or questions about current conditions, call VDOT’s 24-hours Customer Service Center at 800-FOR-ROAD (800-367-7623).
