SNOW SQUALLS WILL IMPACT P.M. TRAVEL IN CENTRAL VA.
VDOT crews continue snow removal operations across Culpeper District

CULPEPER — The Virginia Department of Transportation cautions motorists that a fast-moving snowstorm will affect travel in central Virginia during the afternoon commute. Snow squalls are expected to quickly cover roads, reduce visibility and make driving treacherous.

Crews in VDOT’s Culpeper District are currently working to clear secondary roads after the previous snowfall and deep freeze, but will be shifted back to the interstates and primary highways to respond to this afternoon’s winter weather.

VDOT emphasizes that motorists should remain vigilant, slow down and allow plenty of time for travel. With very low temperatures through the remainder of the week, complete removal of ice on the roadway will be difficult. Travelers should expect to encounter slick conditions for several days.

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 posted on Facebook and the district’s Twitter account, @VaDOTCulp.
