FREDERICKSBURG DISTRICT: ALL ROADS CLEAR, BUT STAY ALERT FOR POTENTIAL ICE
While snow has been cleared from travel lanes, VDOT crews are circulating on area roads and applying treatment materials as needed to reduce any icy conditions

FREDERICKSBURG –Snow has been cleared from the travel lanes on Interstate 95, primary and secondary roads across the Fredericksburg area, Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula, but travelers are encouraged to remain alert this morning for potential icing.

Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews worked overnight to clear remaining snow from state-maintained roads in the 14-county Fredericksburg District. Crews applied treatment materials to roads and structures most likely to experience re-freezing as temperatures fell, such as hills and curves, and interstate ramps, bridges, and overpasses. VDOT Park & Ride commuter lots have been cleared and treated for this morning’s peak commute.

Drivers are encouraged to allow extra travel time and proceed with caution, as ice and slick spots may not be visible on the pavement. VDOT crews continue to circulate on roads this morning to monitor for icing and apply additional treatment materials as needed.

Before starting a trip, travelers are encouraged to call 511, visit www.511Virginia.org, or use VDOT’s 511Virginia free mobile app to find real-time road conditions.
