VDOT: Road Conditions Improving in Central Va.

March 17, 2014

Officials with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) say crews are making headway Monday with clearing roads in Central Virginia.

As of 11 a.m. today, most major roads were reported to have a combination of black pavement and some snowy patches on them. Primary roads in Fauquier and Orange Counties are still snow-covered.

Secondary roads throughout VDOT’s nine-county Culpeper District, which includes Albemarle County, also remain snow-covered at this time. Interstate 64 and I-66 are clear.

VDOT says crews will continue to plow and treat roads after the storm ends, focusing first on clearing interstates and primary highways and then focusing attention on the secondary roads. VDOT’s goal is to make all state-maintained roads passable within 48 hours after the storm ends.
