BRISTOL— The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) reports motorists may encounter slick travel conditions in some areas of southwestern Virginia this morning.

 Be alert to snow-covered primary and secondary highways in Bland, Wise and Russell counties.  Anticipate snow and ice patches on the majority of highways in Dickenson, Buchanan and Tazewell counties.

 Interstate highways and most roads in Washington, Grayson, Smyth, Wythe, Lee and Scott counties are clear but wet.

 VDOT reminds drivers to use caution in winter weather, and;

  • Check current weather, road conditions and traffic before traveling
  • Slow down and allow for extra time to reach your destination
