SNOW REMOVAL CREWS WORKING SECONDARY ROADS
Motorists should continue to drive with caution, check free 511 tools for latest conditions

CULPEPER (5 p.m.) — Crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation spent the afternoon plowing secondary routes across VDOT’s Culpeper District. Most major roads are clear and wet but motorists should continue to use caution while driving because there are slick spots on many roads.

As of 5 p.m. road conditions in VDOT’s Culpeper District are as follows:
Interstate 64 – Clear and wet.
Interstate 66 – Clear and wet.
Primary highways – Mostly clear with some icy patches in Fauquier, Greene, Madison, Orange and Rappahannock counties. Some snow cover remains on Routes 15, 211 and 342 (Brandy Road) in Culpeper County.
Secondary highways (numbered 600 and above) – Snow-covered and slippery in all counties except Fauquier, where mostly clear conditions with icy patches are reported. Crews will continue plowing and treating secondary roads with sand for traction and salt to aid melting.

VDOT advises that refreezing of roadway moisture is likely to occur as temperatures drop overnight. Motorists should plan accordingly to avoid icy conditions, especially during morning travel when traffic volumes are likely to be high.

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.
