SALEM DISTRICT: SNOW SHOWERS CREATE SLICK ROADS IN SOME LOCATIONS

SALEM – As snow showers have passed through southwestern Virginia throughout the afternoon and into the evening, crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation and its contractors have been mobilized to plow and treat roads.  

Tonight and overnight, drivers are cautioned that some roads, particularly in the higher elevations and in the western counties along the West Virginia border and in the New River Valley, may be snow covered and slick.  Motorists should be alert to changing conditions as bands of snow pass through the region.

In the lower elevations where snow fall accumulations have not been as great, drivers should still watch for isolated slick spots on roads, particularly in cooler areas such as bridges, overpasses and ramps.         

Drivers can find latest road conditions before travelling on 511 Virginia at www.511Virginia.org.
