ICY CONDITIONS WILL LIKELY CONTINUE INTO MONDAY
LYNCHBURG – Crews with the Lynchburg District of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) continued to work primary roads (those numbered 1-599), secondary routes (those numbered 600 and above) and neighborhood streets today following a storm which brought between 2 and 4.5 inches of snow to the district.
The Lynchburg District covers the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Buckingham, Campbell, Charlotte, Cumberland, Nelson, Pittsylvania and Prince Edward.
VDOT’s first priority is primary routes; once those have been plowed and treated, efforts moved to the lesser-traveled local roads. While progress was made, it is highly unlikely that those roads are clear of packed snow.
Temperatures in the low 20’s tonight will refreeze any moisture that remains on surfaces and travel over night and into the early hours of Monday morning may be difficult. For the latest road conditions, motorists can dial 511 or visit www.511Virginia.org.
