UPDATE: VDOT CREWS CONTINUE CLEAN UP EFFORTS
 Many roads remain snow covered and icy

LYNCHBURG – (10:30 p.m.) Crews with the Lynchburg District of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) continue to push snow and address icy conditions on roads throughout the south-central portion of the commonwealth and travel remains hazardous.

Strides have been made on primary and heavily traveled secondary routes throughout the district.  Lower volume secondary routes in Campbell, Halifax, Nelson, and Pittsylvania counties continue to have significant snow or ice on the roadways.

VDOT’s goal is to have all roads passable within 48 hours after a storm ends. Crews will continue to work 24 hours per day in 12-hour shifts in an effort to improve conditions. However, motorists should expect possible refreeze over the next several nights.

The Lynchburg District consists of the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Buckingham, Campbell, Charlotte, Cumberland, Halifax, Nelson, Pittsylvania and Prince Edward.
