FREDERICKSBURG DISTRICT: MOTORISTS MAY ENCOUNTER ICY CONDITIONS
Travelers should reduce their speed, proceed with caution

FREDERICKSBURG – Motorists traveling this morning in the Fredericksburg area should allow extra travel time and proceed with caution due to isolated icy patches remaining on several primary roads, and the potential for slick spots on lower-volume routes.

Interstate 95, Route 1, and most major commuter routes are clear, but motorists should remain alert for potentially icy conditions.

Route 3 east of Interstate 95 in Stafford County is in minor condition, with isolated areas of ice. Route 17 and Route 218 in Stafford County are also in minor condition.

Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews worked overnight and remain at work, monitoring I-95 and all other roads for hazardous conditions. Crews are targeting I-95 ramps, bridges and overpasses for additional monitoring, as these areas are most likely to freeze due to lower surface temperatures.

Road conditions may change throughout the day. Motorists can call 511, visit www.511Virginia.org, or use VDOT’s 511Virginia free mobile app to find real-time road conditions in any area of the state.

VDOT’s Customer Service Center is open 24 hours a day to answer questions and take reports of roadway hazards at 1-800-FOR-ROAD (800-367-7623).
