An update from VDOT's Salem District about plowing:
Department of Transportation equipment operators in western Virginia have made
at least one pass over all secondary roads (those numbered 600 and above) and
neighborhood streets making these roads passable.
crews have been focusing on drifting snow and taking advantage of warmer
temperatures to clean up intersections and push snow back off roadsides.
equipment operators will be responding to refreezing and drifting snow as
can call 800-FOR-ROAD (800-367-7623)
to report road concerns or ask road-related questions at VDOT's
24-hour Customer Service Center.
a reminder, VDOT is not responsible for snow removal on private roads or
driveways. In addition, cities and larger towns perform their own snow
The Salem District includes the counties of Bedford, Botetourt, Carroll, Craig, Floyd, Franklin, Giles, Henry, Montgomery, Patrick, Pulaski and Roanoke.
Bedford County Sheriffs Department had the SWAT unit out issuing search warrants today and will have more information tomorrow.
