Weekend Weather to Possibly Impact Roads in Virginia

354
Virginia DOT | I-95 Exit Guide

Another storm, the third in less than one week, is expected to impact Virginia Friday evening into Saturday morning and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is reminding travelers to tune into local forecasts and make plans to adjust travel based on weather conditions. 

With the ground already saturated across the commonwealth from recent weather events, additional rain and heavy winds could cause flooding and downed trees. In some areas roads may be impassable and drivers should use extreme caution on roads. 

VDOT crews will be monitoring roadways and treating conditions as they develop, which includes:

  • Setting up traffic control and detours for high waters and incidents 
  • Removing debris and branches from roadways and coordinating clean-up with other entities – such as power companies 
  • Making emergency repairs to damaged roads and bridges 

TRAVEL REMINDERS FOR AFTER THE STORM 

  • Be alert to debris in the roadway, such as downed trees or limbs. 
  • Watch and be prepared for spray from larger vehicles like trucks. 
  • Never drive through standing water. This could cause you to hydroplane and lose control of your vehicle. 
  • Obey all “road closed” signage. Do not try to move or drive around the barricade. 
  • If you come across a flooded road that has not been barricaded, turn around and use an alternate route.
