Va. Transportation Department Prepares for Snow in Forecast

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Department of Transportation crews are getting ready for the winter weather that could be in store across Virginia later in the week.

TV station WRIC reported Wednesday that crews are beginning to pretreat interstates and major primary routes with anti-icing materials.

Dave Forster, a VDOT spokesman, also told The Daily Press that the agency would be checking equipment and topping off salt supplies and silos.

The National Weather Service in Blacksburg says the first accumulating snow of the season is expected Thursday.

Then another system could bring more snow late Friday into the first half of Saturday.
