As VDOT worked throughout the night to clear the primary roads like I-64 and Route 29, other screws worked well into the day to clear the secondary roads throughout the county.

The slush and the snow, proved to be major factors when it came to road conditions this morning.

Early morning commuters faced a somewhat easy drive on the high volume streets, but early on in the afternoon, snow still covered much of the streets out on the residential and secondary roads

We talked with one local taxi driver, Ben Thomas, who commends road crews for doing a job well done.

"I think they were quite well because they not only used the trucks to push the snow off, but they sanded them and salted them. By the time that the sun comes up, it melts it right away. So its pretty good," Thomas.

Drivers are cautioned to practice safe driving measures throughout the day and into the night.

The cold temperatures tonight could cause re-freezing on many roads.
