Drivers should use caution on Tuesday as roads may be icy

SALEM – With the potential for another round of wintry weather moving into western Virginia on Tuesday, March 3, drivers are cautioned to be alert to icy conditions and slick roads.

Drivers should pay particular attention to bridges, overpasses, curves, shaded areas, higher elevations, cooler spots and elevated surfaces that may become slick or icy before other areas.  

VDOT crews and contractors will monitor road conditions overnight and Tuesday morning and respond with treating road as necessary.
