VDOT focusing on secondary roads

Officials with the Virginia Department of Transportation say major highways have mostly been cleared across the state, but some lesser roads are still covered in snow and ice. Transportation crews are turning their attention to those, but in many places the snow has been packed into ice, making the job more difficult.

"We understand it can be frustrating for those whose road has not yet been cleared, but our crews main focus over the weekend was ensuring that interstate and primary roads were cleared first because they carry the most traffic," VDOT Commissioner David S. Ekern said. "Our crews began working on secondary roads on Sunday and will work through the day and night to address remaining roads."
