VDOT TREATING ROADS, COMMUTER LOTS FOR RUSH HOUR
Motorists urged to use extreme caution this morning

FAIRFAX, Va.—As rain, sleet and freezing temperatures continued across the region overnight, Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews worked through the night to treat bridges, ramps, interstates and other high-volume roads. More than 1,000 trucks continue to treat icy spots and park-and-ride lots in anticipation of this morning’s rush hour.

As temperatures are expected to remain at or below freezing this morning, motorists are urged to use extreme caution. Drivers should pay special attention to subdivision and secondary streets, which may still be snow- or ice-covered.

Motorists can call 511 or log onto www.511Virginia.org  for the latest traffic and travel conditions.
