STAUNTON, Va -- The Virginia Department of Transportation, VDOT, in Staunton said the biggest threat right now in our area is wind, but they also treated roads for possible snow.
VDOT crews worked overnight near Route 33 in Rockingham County for snow and they also had workers near Afton Mountain and Highway 64 for snow. That road was treated to help with the snow.
Sandy Myers, VDOT's communications manager, said that can take teamwork.
“We have all the folks here that do the coordination, plus we monitor the cameras out there,” said Myers. “We can deploy resources or go to the emergency folks if there is a need that we see on the cameras.”
A look inside the VDOT headquarters in Staunton shows they have traffic camera set up around the district to monitor highways.
