VDOT Preparing For Ian

The Virginia Department of Transportation is closely monitoring wind speeds on bridges in the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula regions from today into early next week. High-profile vehicles should not cross bridges when a High Wind Advisory is posted. An Advisory will be posted when sustained winds reach 30 mph over a period of 30 minutes, or there are frequent wind gusts of 45 mph or greater. When sustained winds reach 45 mph or above over a period of 15 minutes a bridge closure notice will be posted.
