ROAD CONDITIONS IMPROVE
Motorists urged to continue to use caution
LYNCHBURG — The condition of roads throughout the Lynchburg District of the Virginia Department of Transportation are improving. Precipitation has ended at most locations and temperatures are slowly rising. The light coating of ice and snow that covered many roads in the district has disappeared or is beginning to do so.
VDOT crews monitored conditions throughout Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning and took steps necessary to ensure that roads were maintained in the best condition possible. Sand and other abrasives were applied, as needed.
Motorists should continue to use caution, allow extra time and know the conditions before leaving their location. In addition, please remember that any moisture remaining on roads tonight and early tomorrow may re-freeze.
Real-time travel information may be found at www.511virginia.org or by dialing 511. Lynchburg District VDOT updates will also be made on 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.
