Drivers will find many snow-covered roads on Wednesday morning in the Shenandoah Valley. Temperatures have been well below freezing for several days, so untreated roadways including many secondary routes are especially challenging for drivers.
Crews from the Virginia Department of Transportation have been working since Tuesday evening to plow and treat roads throughout the valley. VDOT urges motorists to use caution and allow extra time to reach their destination.
