The Virginia Department of Transportation Sunday was getting ready for another winter storm. VDOT’s Salem District said equipment was prepared and employees were ready to mobilize. VDOT said it will not be pre-treating the roads with brine because the wintry weather is forecast to start as rain, which would wash the brine off the roads. With the rain expected to turn into a wintry mix, VDOT says roads are likely to become covered with ice and snow.
To the North, VDOT’s Staunton District urged motorists to avoid travel late Sunday and early Monday and to “shelter in place” until the storm passes.
