NORTHERN VIRGINIA ROAD CONDITIONS UPDATE - 3 p.m.
Crews wrapping up snow removal, preparing for Christmas Eve wintry mix
CHANTILLY – While Virginia Department of Transportation crews finish mopping up shoulders, clearing paths in subdivisions and addressing areas prone to re-freezing, attention also turns to treating roads in advance of a possible wintry mix predicted for Thursday night.
VDOT crews will continue creating paths on subdivision streets throughout Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William counties overnight, so that neighborhoods will be made passable by Wednesday night. Residents can call 703-383-VDOT with issues, which will be logged for crews to address. Please remember that crews clear a path through subdivisions so that vehicles can reach the main roads—they are not cleared to bare pavement or curb-to-curb.
Drivers are still asked to use caution tonight and through the end of the week, as low temperatures will lead to nightly re-freezes of any melted snow and ice. For updates on these and other road conditions, as well as real-time weather, incidents and traffic camera video, drivers should visit www.511Virginia.org
