EXPECT ICY CONDITIONS TONIGHT AND TOMORROW MORNING
Crews will treat roads through morning rush

FAIRFAX—As slushy, wet roads could become icy overnight and through tomorrow morning, northern Virginia crews will continue treating roads through the morning rush, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

“Our biggest concern tonight is freezing and motorists need to use plenty of caution if out on the roads.  Tomorrow morning commuters should monitor forecasts and check road conditions before heading out,” said Branco Vlacich, VDOT's maintenance engineer for northern Virginia. “Once rush hour has ended we will begin to demobilize.”

VDOT is responsible for 17,679 lane miles in Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William and Arlington counties (Arlington County maintains its own secondary roads).
