CLEAR ROAD CONDITIONS IN THE FREDERICKSBURG DISTRICT
Interstate, primary and secondary roads are all open for travel

FREDERICKSBURG – All roads are clear in the Fredericksburg District on Friday morning.  

 

Several inches of snow were recorded along the Middle Peninsula in Essex, King and Queen and King William counties, with trace amounts in Gloucester and Middlesex counties, and in Caroline County in the Fredericksburg area.

 

Crews worked overnight in the affected areas to plow snow and apply treatment chemicals. With all roads now clear, most crews will be demobilizing at noon today in the Fredericksburg District. A small number of workers will remain on duty along the Middle Peninsula to repair potholes that emerged during the storm.

 

Road conditions will vary in other parts of Virginia. Motorists can call 511, visit www.511Virginia.org, or use VDOT’s 511Virginia free mobile app to find real-time road conditions before starting a trip.
