SUNSHINE AND WARMER TEMPERATURES BENEFIT ROADS
LYNCHBURG –Road conditions are once again improving throughout the Lynchburg District of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) with help from Mother Nature and VDOT’s crews.
Sunshine and warmer temperatures are helping to melt some of the hard packed snow and ice primarily on lower volume secondary routes and neighborhood streets.
While this melting is certainly welcomed, motorists need to be mindful that temperatures below or near freezing tonight and early Saturday could result in refreeze. In addition, light precipitation is expected to fall in some areas overnight. Again, caution is urged.
VDOT’s goal remains to have all roads passable within 48 hours after a storm ends. Crews will continue to work, as needed, to improve conditions.
The Lynchburg District consists of the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Buckingham, Campbell, Charlotte, Cumberland, Halifax, Nelson, Pittsylvania and Prince Edward.
