VDOT CONTINUES TO TREAT SUBDIVISION ROADS
Motorists urged to use caution in neighborhood areas

FAIRFAX, Va.—Rush-hour traffic is flowing on interstates and major primary routes, and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) urges motorists to use extreme caution when navigating secondary roads and subdivision streets this morning.

Crews visited many subdivisions overnight, and continue to put down salt and sand along curves, hills, overpasses and icy spots in neighborhood areas. Almost 1,100 trucks are expected to remain on duty until temperatures reach above-freezing levels later this morning.
 
Motorists can call 511 or log onto www.511Virginia.org  for the latest traffic and travel conditions.
