I'm sure I speak for the many motorists who have traveled 460 and surrounding state maintained roads this evening. Thanks ever so much for not paying attention to the weather forecast to see that it was supposed to snow this evening. Thanks for not having the trucks ready to roll when needed. Thanks for not brining in preparation for impending slick roadways. I suppose the state couldn't afford to pay over time or holiday pay unless they were absolutely positive the roads were slick, which was proven by the numerous accidents across the county this evening. I pray that no one was seriously injured.

Got to find something to whine about huh? Your prob one of those people going down the damn road at 100mph. Get a life! VDOT does what they can when they can do it. You want to clean the roads up I'm sure they wont mind you duct taping a shovel to the front of you car and clearing your own damn way. Go to work, Go Home, and stay the hell off the roads. Tak you an anti bitch pill and go to bed!

The VDOT crews do a wonderful job, it's whomever is in charge and is responsible for dispatching them when needed that dropped the ball again. And, no, I don't drive 100 miles an hour. I have a four wheel drive and drive carefully. Evidently YOU didn't HAVE to be on the road this evening and see all the accidents and incidents. I'm sure the police and rescue crews would have appreciated a little beforehand preparation too.

I would have to agree with Really. Normally the roads would have been pretreated. Nothing. Normally you would see several salt trucks in the area waiting on it. Nothing. A couple years ago VDOT fired a company it hired to keep a section of I-81 clear because of
this exact same thing- they dropped the ball and weren't prepared and motorists got stranded on the interstate. Yes, I totally agree here, not sure who the blame should fall on, but someone definitely screwed up.

The one thing all you complainers don't know is....pearisburg v dot s man power has been cut more than half. There used to be 40 plus employees now there is only 17. Reality is those workers not only clear the paths for pearisburg its all of Giles co.and we do have a lot of rough back roads. So remember when your all tucked into a warm bed safe and sound with your family our v dot workers are on the job.most of them has worked 12 and 16 he. Shifts without a day off. And yes they do get good pay ....but its comes with a price. So let's all give those workers a pat on the back and a thank you..remember a lil encouragement and compassion goes a long way. You rock v dot workers. Thank you all safe driving

Even when they had 40 they still couldnt get 460 as clear as Montgomerys VDOT, more than once Ive crossed from both lanes cleared on the Montgomery side only to find barely one lane open from Newport on..Giles VDOT needs to take some lessons from Montgomery on how to clear snow!
