CONDITIONS IMPROVE ON MAIN ROADS, CREWS CONTINUE SECONDARY ROUTE EFFORTS
  4 a.m. update

LYNCHBURG –Major routes throughout the Lynchburg District of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) have improved but icy conditions are still possible this morning due to the freezing of precipitation on surfaces. Crews have worked throughout the night to address snow and ice on secondary routes. 

Major portions of secondary roads in most counties of the district are snow or ice covered; however, those in Nelson and Prince Edward counties have significant snow or ice cover at this time.

VDOT’s goal remains to have all roads passable within 48 hours after a storm ends. Crews will continue to work 24 hours per day in 12-hour shifts in an effort to improve conditions. However, motorists should expect possible refreeze over the next several nights.

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