SALEM DISTRICT: LOW TEMPERATURES COULD CREATE SLICK ROADS THIS EVENING AND OVERNIGHT
Road conditions could change as wet roads freeze and more precipitation moves through

SALEM – Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews across the state have been mobilized today to treat roads as a wintry mix of precipitation has been affecting travel.

Most roads in VDOT’s Salem District are currently in clear or minor condition, which means they are mostly wet with isolated slick spots.

However, conditions could change later this evening or overnight as colder temperatures and more precipitation moves into the region.  Drivers are encouraged to avoid travel this evening and overnight.

Traffic and road condition information can be obtained by dialing 511 or visiting 511Virginia.org. To report downed trees or debris in state-maintained roadways, call VDOT’s Customer Service Center, available 24 hours-a-day, seven days a week, at 1-800-FOR- ROAD (1-800-367-7623)

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