MOTORISTS SHOULD BE ALERT TO ICY CONDITIONS TONIGHT/EARLY THURSDAY

LYNCHBURG – Motorists should be aware that late tonight/early Thursday roads could be icy across much of Virginia, including those in the Lynchburg District of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).

Snow ended in some locations but rain and/or snow showers could fall before the storm leaves the region. Unfortunately, temperatures around or slightly below freezing could cause surfaces, especially bridges, overpasses and ramps, to refreeze.

VDOT crews will continue to respond to any issues and motorists should anticipate possible icy conditions through early Thursday.

Motorists are encouraged to monitor road conditions using VDOT’s free 511 tools. Additional information about winter-weather preparations and response can be found on VDOT’s website at www.virginiadot.org/travel/snow.asp. Local updates will be posted to VDOT’s Lynchburg District Twitter account.

VDOT’s Lynchburg District includes the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Buckingham, Campbell, Charlotte, Cumberland, Halifax, Nelson, Pittsylvania and Prince Edward.
