VDOT MOVES FOCUS TO SECONDARY ROADS OVERNIGHT
Interstates clear but could develop icy patches overnight
HAMPTON ROADS —Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews are shifting their snow and ice removals efforts from interstate and primary roads to the secondary roads in the Hampton Roads area. With dropping temperatures expected overnight, slick conditions could exist and caution should be taken when driving.
Crews are actively working to plow and treat secondary roads. However, crews will still monitor and treat interstate and primary roadways should icy conditions develop.
