RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Department of Transportation says it has plenty in its snow-removal budget for the storm heading the state's way.
    
VDOT said Tuesday it has spent approximately $96.5 million of its snow-removal budget, leaving about one third left for the fiscal year, including a storm that threatens to dump a foot or more of snow on the state within the next 24 hours.
    
VDOT said its crews across the state will be working in 12-hour shifts to clear roads. In northern Virginia, more than 4,000 salt trucks and plows are ready to be deployed.
    
Forecasters say northern and western portions of the state will take the brunt of the storm.
