Road crews will continue snow removal efforts overnight

Posted:
BRISTOL – Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews as well as contractor crews will continue working through the night and the remainder of the storm to clear snow from roads in southwestern Virginia. 
With snow continuing to fall in many areas and the anticipation of more snow overnight, motorists can expect snow-covered and slick travel conditions.  VDOT strongly advises that non-essential travel be postponed until the storm passes and road conditions improve.
As of 10 p.m., the majority of highways in southwestern Virginia are extremely slick and hazardous, creating difficult travel conditions.
VDOT crews and contractors are responding to the storm with about 750 pieces of equipment deployed across the twelve counties of the Bristol District. VDOT's goal is to make all roads passable within 48 hours after the storm ends.
VDOT's 511 travel website, www.511virginia.org, is updated in real time with weather and road conditions for all highways in Virginia. Once on the road VDOT's 511 mobile app provides real-time traffic and weather information for both iPhone and Android platforms. Travelers can also call 511 from any telephone in Virginia for real-time information on traffic and road conditions.
