LIGHT SNOW BEGINS IN THE FREDERICKSBURG REGION
Crews will monitor road conditions throughout the day and overnight treating as needed

FREDERICKSBURG – Light snow has begun to fall in portions of the 14-county Fredericksburg District.

 

Crews are mobilized and will keep a close eye on road conditions throughout the day and overnight. Salt and abrasives will be applied to roadways as needed.

 

Pavement temperatures are expected to remain above freezing until early tomorrow morning when a drop in temperature will create the potential for icy conditions during the morning rush hour.

 

Drivers should use caution on roads that appear wet, as ice may have formed. Slick road conditions are possible, especially on secondary routes, hills, curves and in neighborhoods. Bridges, overpasses, ramps and shaded areas usually freeze first.

 

Crews will remain mobilized until conditions have improved throughout the Fredericksburg District.

 

Before hitting the road drivers can call 511, visit www.511Virginia.org, or use VDOT’s 511Virginia free mobile app to find real-time road conditions in any area of the state.
