All through the year, VDOT has been working tirelessly to see to it that various roadways around Westmoreland County are back up into working shape; and with fall in full swing and winter around the corner, preparations are also in the works for when the inevitable snowfall becomes much more than a simple dusting. At this month’s Board of Supervisors meeting, VDOT was on hand to inform them of just what had been going on, and that preparations were at long last underway for this year.

“We’ve been working since last season with almost no preparation, but we’ve been hard at work getting ready now for what Nature has in store for us,” George Bowman, one of the VDOT representatives, explained. “I’d just like to remind the board, and I hope you’ll remind your citizens, that we ask that when we do get into weather situations, please stay off the roads. We can get them cleaned and safe much faster if they do when this stuff happens. I know some people can’t avoid being on the road, but if they can, we’ll get the job done that much quicker.”
