RICHMOND – As the winter storm moves out of Virginia, The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) says road conditions have improved, but warns low overnight temperatures could make for icy roads Thursday morning.
As of 4 p.m. most primary roads are in minor condition, meaning they are icy and slick in spots, with the majority of the area's secondary roads still snow-covered, according to VDOT.
VDOT urges drivers to avoid all non-essential travel during the storm.
VDOT is working closely with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management, Virginia State Police and other state agencies to coordinate emergency response efforts.
Emergency operations will continue overnight and until storm has ended and roads are clear.
As temperatures drop overnight, wet snow and slush could re-freeze, making for slippery road conditions for the Thursday morning commute. Motorists are encouraged to check road conditions before travel and to observe the following precautions:
Slow down and allow extra time to reach your destination
Be aware of potentially icy areas such as shady spots and bridges
Keep a safe distance of at least five seconds behind other vehicles and trucks that are plowing the road
Do not pass a snowplow or spreader unless it is absolutely necessary
