Sunday's Snow Causes Slick Driving Conditions

March 16, 2014

The Virginia Department of Transportation is telling drivers if they don't have to be on the roads Sunday night, they shouldn't head out.

VDOT crews will be taking care of snow on interstates and primary highways first. Then, they will move on to secondary roads.

At 9:00 p.m. Sunday, VDOT said roads across Central Virginia were wet but clear.

VDOT officials say if you see plows on the road, stay at least 100 feet behind and don't pass them.

Officials say driving is likely to be hazardous overnight and early Monday as the snow and temperatures continue to drop.

Crews have been spreading sand and salt to melt the snow and increase traction.

The department's goal is to make all state-maintained roads drivable within 48 hours after the storm ends.
