DRIVERS ASKED TO DELAY TRAVEL IN N. VA. THIS MORNING

Many roads still snow-covered; VDOT crews working to clear snow and treat icy conditions

FAIRFAX Drivers are urged to delay travel today until at least 10:00 a.m., as Virginia Department of Transportation crews continue working to clear and treat roads in Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William and Arlington counties. Interstates and major primaries are passable with extreme caution. Other roads were also plowed continuously overnight but still have a layer of snow and ice.

What drivers should know today:

·         HOV restrictions are lifted on I-66, I-395 and the Dulles Toll Road. HOV-3 requirements still apply on the 495 and 95 Express Lanes.

·         Eastbound I-66 X lanes will be unavailable for the morning rush hour, as crews continue to clear shoulders.

·         Crews continue to clear interstates, major roads and neighborhood streets concurrently. Check www.vdotplows.org to see the status of plowing in neighborhoods.

·         If you can, park in your driveway or on the odd-numbered side of the street to allow plows room to pass.

·         After a plow has passed, roads will be passable, but will not be bare pavement and may remain snow-packed.

·         Stay off the roads or delay trips to allow crews time to safely treat the roads.

There is a Winter Storm Warning in effect for Northern Virginia. As the snow approaches our region I wanted to provide you with some helpful contact information in case of an emergency.

Please stay safe and look after one another. Feel free to contact my office if you need any further information at 804-698-7535.

Sincerely,

 

Senator Dick Saslaw
