ROAD CONDITIONS IMPROVING BUT STILL SOME SLICK SPOTS
VDOT Culpeper District crews continue to plow, apply abrasives
CULPEPER — (11:30 a.m.) The snow has stopped but crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation continue working to clear roads across the northern half of the Culpeper District, where up to three inches of snowfall affected travel this morning.
At this hour motorists on Interstate 66 in Fauquier County will encounter some patches of slush. Other roads in northern Fauquier County and across Rappahannock County remain snow-covered. In southern Fauquier, Culpeper, Madison and Greene Counties, roads are mostly clear with some slippery, snowy spots.
VDOT crews will remain on duty until all roads are cleared, working first to make interstates and primary highways passable, then turning their attention to secondary roads and finally subdivision streets.
Motorists should use the 511 Virginia system to obtain information about specific routes before they travel. View the entire list of roads affected by winter weather, sortable by county, at www.511virginia.org/mobile/?menu_id=conditions.
