Crews continue efforts to make roads passable across Virginia after winter storm


RICHMOND, Virginia — Virginia Department of Transportation crews are continuing efforts to improve road conditions across the state following a sloppy serving of winter weather.

Officials say conditions on most interstate, primary and secondary roads range from minor to moderate.

Crews continuing working in 12-hour shifts on Friday to make roads passable but motorists are being encouraged to avoid travel.

VDOT says extremely low temperatures could mean icy roads, especially on bridges, ramps and overpasses.

And officials say many roads in the southwestern part of the state have been closed due to flooding.
