VDOT Crews Working Overnight to Monitor and Treat Roads
Motorists are advised to avoid unnecessary travel
SUFFOLK — Crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will continue working overnight to patrol the roadways and respond to road conditions as necessary. Earlier today, the interstates, primary roads and some secondary routes were pre-treated, in addition to the bridges, ramps and overpasses. The pre-treatment, combined with tonight’s above-freezing temperatures throughout most of Hampton Roads, has helped keep the interstates and primary roads in good condition. However, motorists are advised to travel only if necessary and to use extreme caution when driving.
