Slick Conditions Reported on Secondary Roads in Central Virginia

February 10, 2011

Motorists who travel Thursday morning should check conditions before leaving and expect to encounter slippery conditions on secondary roads across Central Virginia.

Crews from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) worked all Wednesday night spreading sand and salt on the roads to improve traction and help melt the snow, but many roads still have some patches of snow, particularly on secondary roads and neighborhood streets.

Interstate 64 is reported to be clear Thursday morning in Albemarle County but there are some snowy patches reported in Louisa County. I-66 is also clear and wet in Fauquier County east into Northern Virginia. Primary highways in Albemarle, Fluvanna, Louisa and Rappahannock counties are reported in minor condition, mostly clear and wet with patches of snow.

VDOT crews have worked overnight and the interstates and primary highways have been treated with salt and sand. Crews are shifting to the secondary roads and will continue that work this morning. Road conditions are expected to improve later in the morning as temperatures rise above freezing.

Real-time road conditions and weather forecasts are available on VDOT’s traffic and travel web site,
