BE ALERT FOR SLICK CONDITIONS IF TRAVELING THIS MORNING
Subfreezing temperatures overnight were ideal for black ice formation

CULPEPER —Virginia Department of Transportation crews and contractors worked overnight to complete plowing roads in the Culpeper District. Most roads are clear of accumulating snow, but frigid temperatures overnight have frozen any remaining snow and slick conditions are likely early this morning.

Interstate 64, I-66 and all primary highways in the district’s nine counties are reported clear and secondary roads are in minor condition, largely due to patches of snow and slush remaining after the roads were plowed. VDOT crews will remain on duty Tuesday morning to treat roads as needed. 

Drivers planning to travel early Tuesday morning should plan for extra travel time, drive for the conditions by reducing speed and use VDOT’s free 511 tools to check road conditions along their route.

Additional information about winter-weather preparations and response can be found at www.virginiadot.org/travel/snow.asp. Local updates are posted to Twitter.com/VaDOTCulp and on the district’s snow information webpage.

VDOT’s Culpeper District includes the counties of Albemarle, Culpeper, Fauquier, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Orange and Rappahannock.
