Crews brined Interstate 64, I-66 and other major highways on Wednesday and Thursday and have been on duty overnight to treat slick roads with salt and sand where needed.
VDOT continues to monitor the forecast and will have crews on duty for the second round of snowfall predicted overnight Friday and into Saturday. Motorists should remain in tune to local weather and make travel plans accordingly.
