Even clear roads can experience the freeze/thaw cycle

LYNCHBURG – While primary roads in much of the state are in good condition today, they are not immune to the effects of the freeze/thaw cycle.  Motorists should continue to use caution on all roads. 

Main roads are clear or have minor conditions in the ten-county Lynchburg District of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) which includes the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Buckingham, Campbell, Charlotte, Cumberland, Halifax, Nelson, Pittsylvania and Prince Edward. 

Secondary roads in the district are generally in minor to moderate condition --- there is the potential for snow or ice on portions of the roadway.   However, secondary routes in Nelson County remain in severe condition with a significant accumulation of snow or ice and hazardous conditions. 

Once again, temperatures are expected to drop tonight and anything that has thawed may potentially freeze.  Motorists should be alert to the condition.  For the latest real-time traffic information, please call 511 or visit
