Motorists advised to use caution as moisture from melting snow could lead to slick road conditions in Fredericksburg District

FREDERICKSBURG – Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews in the Fredericksburg District will patrol roads overnight and apply treatment materials as temperatures drop below freezing.

Any moisture remaining on the roads from melted snow, slush and ice is expected to freeze. Motorists traveling overnight and tomorrow morning are encouraged to allow additional travel time, reduce their speed and proceed with caution.

Hazardous road conditions may be present, especially on roads carrying less traffic, on hills and curves, and on bridges, overpasses, and interstate ramps.

Crews continued work Wednesday to remove accumulated snow from road shoulders and intersections to improve sight distances and to re-open drainage structures.
