FREDERICKSBURG DISTRICT CREWS BEGIN TO MAKE PROGRESS
(Most roads remain snow covered)

FREDERICSKSBURG—  VDOT crews are beginning to make progress on I-95 and on the primary routes throughout the district.

Most roads remain snow covered this morning but are passable. Motorists should use extreme caution when traveling.

VDOT crews will continue to focus on clearing the interstate, primary routes and high volume secondary routes throughout the day.  It is unlikely that crews will reach the secondary and subdivisions today, however, it is VDOTS’s goal to have all roads passable within 48 hours after a storm ends.

For the latest road condition information call 511 or visit www.511virginia.org

• Severe – drifting or partially blocked road. Snow tires or chains are necessary.
• Moderate – snow or ice on major portions of the roadway. Snow tires or chains are advisable.
