Snow affecting road conditions in southwest Virginia


Snow has started to fall throughout southwest Virginia, which will affect morning commutes. 

Major highways, main roads and secondary roads are in minor condition Wednesday morning. Drivers can expect icy patches and slick spots. Bridges and ramps will be in the worst condition. Snow is beginning to stick to roads. 

As of 7:40 a.m., state police have responded to 27 crashes statewide Wednesday morning. Thirteen of them happened in southwest Virginia. 

Virginia Department of Transportation crews pretreated about 200 miles of main roads in the area Tuesday evening. They will start to push snow off of main roads once approximately two inches have accumulated. 

VDOT's goal is to have roads passable with 48 hours after a storm ends.
