AS MAIN ROADS CLEAR, CREWS BEGIN WORK ON SECONDARIES
VDOT will continue snow removal operations until all roads passable

CULPEPER — (11 a.m.) Crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation have made good progress on central Virginia’s interstates and primary highways, thanks to favorable temperatures and the effective use of salt.

As of 11 a.m. road conditions in VDOT’s Culpeper District are as follows:

  • Interstates 64 and 66 – Clear and wet, with some slush remaining on the road shoulders.
  • Primary highways – Mostly clear with isolated slick spots lingering in Albemarle, Culpeper, Fauquier, Louisa and Rappahannock counties.
  • Secondary highways (numbered 600 and above) – Ranging from partially clear with snowy patches to snow-covered. Secondary roads in Fluvanna and Louisa counties remain blanketed by as much as five inches of snow.

Crews have begun to shift over to the secondary road system, where they will plow and treat roads to aid melting and improve traction. VDOT will continue its snow-removal efforts around the clock in 12-hour shifts until all roads are passable.

Road conditions and other real-time travel information can be found on the 511 Virginia website, the free VDOT 511 mobile app or by calling 511 from any phone in Virginia. VDOT updates are also on Facebook and the district’s Twitter account, @VaDOTCulp.
