State Police on alert for winter weather

The Virginia State Police are on alert for the coming winter weather, especially in Southwest Virginia, along the I-81 corridor and Northern Virginia. We will have all available troopers working to respond to crashes and disabled vehicles – which are our most common calls for service during winter weather conditions. State police will also extend shifts and/or call out additional resources, if needed.
State police is encouraging those living and working in those regions most impacted by the snow and icy conditions to delay travel until mid-day Wednesday. That enables VDOT to tend to the roads and ensures safe travel conditions for everyone.
If you must travel, then please drive for conditions by slowing your speed, using headlights and avoiding distractions. To check road conditions before heading out, go to or download the VDOT 511 app.
