RICHMOND, Va. — The Virginia Department of Transportation says 2,500 workers and more than 12,000 plows and other snow-fighting equipment are clearing snow-covered interstates and primary roads, even as snow continues to fall in the northern part of the state.
VDOT describes the state’s road conditions Thursday as “moderate,” with some snow covering a major portion of the pavement.
Besides VDOT workers, the state has called in contractors to treat and plow road surfaces. VDOT officials are urging motorists to avoid or limit travel so crews can do their work.
