Published 12:39 pm Sunday, January 24, 2016

Suffolk Public Works reports that most primary roads have been treated, according to a city press release.

While icy spots may exist, most primary roads are clear and passable, according to the release. Crews are currently addressing secondary roads and isolated spots on primaries.

Crews are still in 12-hour shifts running 20 plows and spreaders throughout the city. Public Works still encourages citizens to avoid unnecessary travel and to exercise caution on the roads if travel is necessary.

Suffolk Police have responded to 104 reported vehicle accidents since the onset of inclement weather Friday. 

The Virginia Department of Transportation reports that all area interstates are clear, but drivers should still use caution and completely clear their vehicles of ice and snow before hitting the road.

City staff will continue work today to ensure that all city facilities, parking lots and sidewalks adjacent to facilities are in good condition to open Monday morning.
