SALEM DISTRICT: COMMUTERS SHOULD WATCH FOR ICY SPOTS, PARTICULARLY ON BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES
Roads in Craig County saw additional icing overnight

SALEM – Crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and its contractors were mobilized last night as freezing rain continued in portions of southwestern Virginia.     

This morning, roads in VDOT’s Salem District are mostly clear with isolated icy spots.  Drivers should use extra caution on bridges and overpasses and other cooler spots, especially in the higher elevations, where slick spots may have formed.  

In Craig County, there was additional icing overnight, and roads in that county are in moderate condition which means they are ice covered.

Road conditions are expected to improve throughout the day once temperatures rise.

Traffic and road condition information can be obtained by dialing 511 or visiting 511Virginia.org.

The Salem District includes the counties of Bedford, Botetourt, Carroll, Craig, Floyd, Franklin, Giles, Henry, Montgomery, Patrick, Pulaski and Roanoke.
