ICY PATCHES POSSIBLE ON ROADWAYS

LYNCHBURG—Precipitation has ended and a strong wind has blown throughout the overnight hours drying much of the moisture that remained on roads and other structures but motorists should still use caution.  Black ice is in the forecast for the early morning hours. 

Major roads in the Lynchburg District of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) have mostly bare pavement with icy patches or are clear.  Secondary roads, also, have icy patches in most locations with the exception of Pittsylvania County where more snow/ice can be found. 

The Lynchburg District includes the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Buckingham, Campbell, Charlotte, Cumberland, Halifax, Nelson, Pittsylvania and Prince Edward. 

Motorists are urged to use caution and be alert to changing conditions.  Before heading out, call 511 for the latest weather and road condition information or visit www. 511virginia.org
