VDOT Reassures Public on Snow Removal


VDOT Reassures Public on Snow Removal

The Virginia Department of Transportation has amassed its resources and is ready to address yet another major winter storm expected to impact much of Virginia on Friday and Saturday. VDOT crews are still completing cleanup efforts from two other winter storms that impacted parts of the commonwealth in the past week. As of February 1, VDOT has already expended the $79 million budgeted for statewide snow-removal efforts this year and has now tapped into emergency maintenance reserve funds to pay for snow removal. “We will not reduce service levels or scale back on snow-removal efforts regardless of how much it costs this year,” said Gregory Whirley, acting commissioner.This will hopefully allay the concerns of many homeowners wondering whether the state’s current budget woes would impact core services this early in the year.
