SNOW REMOVAL EFFORTS CONTINUE IN SOUTH-CENTRAL VIRGINIA

LYNCHBURG –Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews remained fully-involved in winter weather response mode overnight in the 10-county Lynchburg District and efforts will continue today.

Currently, most primary and secondary routes are snow covered in the district and additional light snow is possible. VDOT’s goal is to have all state-maintained roads passable within 48 hours after a storm ends. Passable does not mean that there will necessarily be bare pavement.

The snow and cold temperatures will make driving conditions dangerous and travel is not encouraged. Visibility may also be an issue due to blowing and drifting snow.

The public should tune in to local weather reports and use 511 Virginia to monitor road conditions and live traffic camera feeds.

Additional information about VDOT’s winter-weather preparations and response can be found at www.virginiadot.org/travel/snow.asp.
