SNOW, RAIN MIX POSSIBLE TONIGHT ON MIDDLE PENINSULA, NORTHERN NECK
VDOT crews will mobilize at 8 p.m. Saturday to monitor road conditions overnight
FREDERICKSBURG – A winter weather advisory has been issued for several counties along the eastern tip of the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck, with the potential for a mix of rain and snow.
Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews will be mobilizing in these areas at 8 p.m. Saturday to monitor road conditions and pavement temperatures overnight, and treat roads as needed.
Motorists traveling this evening and Sunday morning are encouraged to proceed with caution and reduce their speed, as they may encounter wet, slick or snow-covered roads.
Extra caution should be used on ramps, bridges and overpasses, where pavement temperatures are lower, and freezing conditions may develop first.
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.
VDOT’s Customer Service Center is open 24 hours a day to answer questions and take reports of roadway hazards at 1-800-FOR-ROAD (800-367-7623).
VDOT’s 14-county Fredericksburg District includes the counties of Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania and Stafford in the Fredericksburg area; Northumberland, Richmond, Lancaster and Westmoreland counties in the Northern Neck; Essex, Gloucester, King & Queen, King William, Mathews and Middlesex counties in the Middle Peninsula.
