LYNCHBURG—(4 am) Snow-covered roads are the norm this morning in the Lynchburg District of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and motorists are urged to use caution when deciding to travel. Snowfall amounts from 4 inches in the southern portion of the district to .5 inches in the north are reported and snow is continuing to fall.

VDOT crews have worked throughout the night plowing on the highest volume roads. Their goal is to have every state-maintained road passable within 48 hours after a storm ends. 

Motorists are encouraged to avoid travel, if possible. If travel is necessary, take every precaution, including driving slowly, allowing extra time and being prepared for icy bridges, overpasses and roads.

Road conditions and other real-time travel information can be found on the 511 Virginia website, the free VDOT 511 mobile app or by calling 511 from any phone in Virginia. VDOT updates are also on Facebook and the district’s Twitter account, @VaDOTLynchburg.

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