ROAD CONDITIONS IMPROVE, CAUTION URGED DURING OVERNIGHT HOURS

LYNCHBURG-Motorists in most of the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Lynchburg District have faced some form of wintry precipitation today and may have experienced some icy road conditions as a result.

As of this afternoon, most roads are clear or have minor isolated spots of snow or ice; however, in the southern portion of the district, secondary roads in Pittsylvania and Halifax Counties are still generally snow or ice covered.  Crews continue to work in those areas.

Motorists are reminded that any precipitation that remains on roads, bridges or other structure may refreeze today when temperatures drop once again.

It is important that motorists know the conditions before traveling. They are encouraged to check VDOT’s www.511virginia.org, and/or call 511.  In addition, cars and drivers should be prepared for the conditions they may encounter.

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