Motorists should check road conditions before traveling

CULPEPER —The rain and freezing rain that fell across Central Virginia today has left some roads in minor condition in the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Culpeper District. As temperatures drop below freezing overnight, any moisture on the roads has the potential to refreeze into black ice. VDOT crews will remain on duty to treat roads as needed.

As of 10 p.m., drivers may see icy conditions on primary and secondary roads in Albemarle and Fauquier counties as well as on secondary roads in Greene County.

Motorists who plan to travel overnight and in the early morning hours on Tuesday should drive with care and use VDOT’s free 511 tools to check road conditions before leaving.

Additional information about winter-weather preparations and response can be found at Local updates are posted to and on the district’s snow information webpage.

VDOT’s Culpeper District includes the counties of Albemarle, Culpeper, Fauquier, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Orange and Rappahannock.
