VDOT Crews Prepping for More Snow This Weekend

Virginia Department of Transportation crews will begin reporting overnight tonight for a wide range of wintry weather forecasted in Northern Virginia over the next 24 hours.  


Crews will report to local headquarters in Loudoun, Fairfax, Arlington and Prince William counties beginning at midnight tonight. By noon Saturday, more than 1,400 trucks will be deployed along interstates, main roads and neighborhood streets to treat and plow if necessary. VDOT is closely monitoring the changing forecast to adjust plans or increase equipment as needed.


While temperatures have not been favorable to pre-treat, residual salt remains on many roads where crews have treated roads throughout the week.

VDOT asks drivers to monitor the forecast closely and to delay trips during heavy snow or sleet Saturday. Use extreme caution if driving as road conditions may change rapidly.
