WINTER WEATHER MAY AFFECT TRAVEL TUESDAY EVENING
Watch local forecasts, conditions; be prepared to adjust plans accordingly

CULPEPER — Drivers should monitor local forecasts as another winter storm moves across Central Virginia. Sub-freezing temperatures and the storm’s timing could make travel challenging overnight Tuesday and Wednesday morning.

VDOT crews reported to work early Tuesday morning to prepare trucks and supplies and will be on duty overnight to monitor conditions. Snowplows will spread a mix of sand and salt to improve traction and melt any ice that forms on the road surface.

Motorists who must travel are encouraged to check road conditions using VDOT’s free 511 tools. 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.
