CLEAR TO MINOR ROAD CONDITIONS IN FREDERICKSBURG DISTRICT
Motorists may encounter patches of ice and slick spots in the I-95 corridor

FREDERICKSBURG – Light snow and a wintry mix is falling along the I-95 corridor in the Fredericksburg area, and motorists traveling in this region may encounter patches of ice and slick spots, especially in northern Stafford County.  

 

Interstate 95 is currently clear with wet pavement. Route 1 in Stafford and Spotsylvania County is in minor condition, with isolated areas of snow-covered or ice-covered roadway. Motorists should also proceed with additional caution on routes 3, 17, and 218 in Stafford, which are in minor condition.

 

Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews continue to circulate throughout the 14-county Fredericksburg District to apply sand, salt and chemicals as needed.  

 

Temperatures are expected to fall well below freezing overnight, with the potential for re-freezing of any moisture. VDOT crews will remain mobilized through Wednesday morning to treat any hazardous roadway conditions that develop.  

 

Before driving, motorists can view real-time road conditions on 511Virginia. 511Virginia is online at www.511Virginia.org, or motorists can call 511 from any phone in Virginia. VDOT’s 511Virginia free mobile app is also available for download on mobile devices.
