VDOT posting


From VDOT 

Make sure you have all your sewing supplies for a sewday or two coming up.
Please don't travel if you don't need too and be safe.

From the Virginia Department of Transportation:

Winter storm to impact students' semester return. Motorists urged to avoid travel during and immediately following snow, ice With forecasted winter storms coinciding with the return of students to college campuses around the Commonwealth this weekend, the Virginia Department of Transportation is reminding students and their families to plan move-in travel around winter weather.

The current forecast indicates a significant winter storm with snow starting in Virginia Saturday evening, and an all-day snow event Sunday. Accumulating snow of more than 6 inches will cause dangerous travel conditions Sunday.

Those with travel plans are encouraged to monitor forecasts for their entire route and exercise sound judgment before starting their trip.

Travel on Sunday is not advised. Motorists are urged to return early, prior to the storm, or delay travel until roadways are safe after the storm.

Key reminders:
• Plan travel around the storm
• If snow or ice is on the road, conditions are hazardous

If you must travel:
• Review forecasts along the entire route
• Check road conditions along travel route at 511Virginia.org
• Allow plenty of time to reach your destination
• Keep a safe distance of at least five seconds behind the vehicle ahead of you
• Brake very lightly to keep your tires from slipping on pavement
• Do not pass snowplows

• Keep an emergency winter weather kit in your vehicle which includes food, water, first aid materials, tools and blankets in the event of a breakdown or stoppage.

For more information on winter weather travel, visit virginiadot.org/travel/snow.asp.

To report hazardous road conditions or talk to a customer service representative, call VDOT’s Customer Service Center at 800-FOR-ROAD (800-367-7623) or visit online at my.vdot.virginia.gov
.

VDOT recently partnered with Waze to add a new feature to the navigation software app that allows users to report, in real-time during winter weather, when a road has not been plowed. It will also inform travelers when they are approaching a road that has been identified by other drivers as unplowed.

Traffic information is also available on Twitter @511statewideVA; for general VDOT information, follow @VaDOT.

Make sure you have all your sewing supplies for a sewday or two coming up.
Please don't travel if you don't need too and be safe.

Happy sewing everyone,

Phyllis and the QA staff
