VDOT CREWS CONTINUE PROGRESS IN CENTRAL VA.
Motorists should use free 511 tools to check on roads before travel

CULPEPER — (11 a.m.) Crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation are making progress with clearing interstates and primary highways in central Virginia and have begun to address snow accumulated on some secondary routes. Motorists are asked to check road conditions before traveling and to use caution once behind the wheel, as slick spots persist on many roads.

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

  • Interstate 64 – Clear and wet, with isolated snowy patches in Louisa County.
  • Interstate 66 – Clear and wet.
  • Primary highways – Mostly clear with some slick spots. Some snow cover remains on Routes 15, 29, 211, 229 and 342 (Brandy Road) in Culpeper County.
  • Secondary highways (numbered 600 and above) – Snow-covered and slippery. 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.

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.
