FREDERICKSBURG DISTRICT: ROADS ARE CLEAR WITH LIGHT SNOW FALLING
I-95, primary and high-volume secondary roads are clear, but travelers should be alert for slick spots and isolated snow patches on low-volume roads and in subdivisions

FREDERICKSBURG – Interstate 95, primary roads and most secondary roads in the Fredericksburg area, Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula are clear this morning.

Motorists may encounter isolated patches of snow on lower-volume secondary roads and subdivision streets in the Fredericksburg area.

Light snow is anticipated to continue falling this morning. Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews and contractor crews worked overnight and continue working this morning to apply sand and salt as needed to improve motorist traction on the road, and to treat any slippery road conditions.

Travelers are encouraged to reduce their speed and allow extra travel time this morning, especially on roads most likely to have isolated areas of snow, such as secondary roads carrying light traffic, and on hills and curves.
