Snow removal plans across Hampton Roads

1/4/18: Very hazardous road conditions in Chesapeake and throughout Hampton Roads as a winter storm dumps snow on the region.

HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WVEC) -- The first winter storm of the season brought several inches of snow to Hampton Roads this weekend and cities across the region want residents to be aware of snow removal procedures.

City officials advise residents should avoid travel unless absolutely necessary during a winter event. If you must travel, motorists are encouraged to drive with caution.

Drivers should also avoid passing snow plows, as it may cross over the center line and the road in front of the plow is usually in much worse condition.

VDOT’s goal is to have all state-maintained roads passable within 48 hours after a storm ends, if there are no additional accumulations.
