Getting ready for snow and ice this weekend


With another round of winter weather heading to the Two Virginias, crews with the West Virginia Division of Highways are getting ready to weather the storm.

Some trucks already have blades on them while other vehicles are ready to spread salt on roads.

District Manager Tommy Camden says if the storm starts out as rain and then freezes, that will prevent crews from pre-treating roadways with salt.

"If we put down salt to try and ahead of the ice, if it's raining obviously it's going to wash off.  We'll almost have to treat the circumstances as they occur," says Camden.

He adds crews will focus first on primary roads before treating secondary roads.
