Interstates and most primary roads are clear, but secondary routes are in minor to moderate condition.

The Virginia Department of Transportation crews and contractors continue to plow and treat roads throughout the Staunton District, where snowfall totals ranged from three to 11 inches. Motorists should be alert for snow-removal equipment and give crews plenty of room to work.
