'No Issues' at Springfield Interchange: VDOT
The Springfield Interchange was a scene of chaos and hours-long delays during an ice storm last February. This time, says VDOT spokeswoman Joan Morris, traffic there is moving smoothly if slowly.
Last year's events led to a VDOT report that said the storm response was so mismanaged that anti-icing equipment sat unused, electronic warning signs remained dark and a motorist alert system was not updated for hours.
Today, said Morris, the interchage is being repeatedly treated by nine trucks dedicated to its 50 ramps and sky-high overpasses.
"Knock on wood, there's been no issues there,'' said Morris.
