8 a.m. ROAD CONDITION UPDATE

LYNCHBURG —Road conditions are improving this morning after snow, sleet and freezing drizzle fell across much of the Lynchburg District of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) on Sunday and into the early hours of Monday. 

As of 8 a.m., primary roads in Appomattox, Buckingham, Campbell, Charlotte, Cumberland, Halifax, Pittsylvania and Prince Edward Counties were either clear or had isolated spots of snow, ice or slush. Major roads in Amherst and Nelson Counties varied in condition from clear to moderate.  Moderate condition indicates that major portions of the road are covered with snow or ice. 

Crews across the Lynchburg District worked throughout the day and night on Sunday pushing snow, as appropriate and applying salt and abrasives to road surfaces.  Crews are working again today and once major roads are safe, crews will move their efforts to secondary routes.    

Motorists are urged to remember that temperatures are expected to drop again this evening and that any moisture left on roadways will likely refreeze.  Caution is important during the overnight hours and early into Tuesday morning
