VDOT prepares for snow

Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews have a mobile operation under way to pre-treat Interstate 95, primary roads and key secondary routes in the Fredericksburg District with a salt brine anti-icing solution. The district includes all Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck counties.

Accumulating snow is expected to fall throughout the 14-county district, starting Tuesday morning. Wind gusts of up to 45 mph are also possible. 

 VDOT crews are preparing equipment and materials today, and will mobilize starting at 4 a.m. Tuesday morning to plow snow and treat roads.

Anti-icing prevents ice from bonding to the pavement during inclement weather, which reduces the risk of hazardous travel conditions.

Before starting a trip on Tuesday, motorists are encouraged to check 511Virginia for the latest road conditions. Call 511, visit www.511Virginia.org, or use VDOT’s 511Virginia free mobile app to find real-time road conditions in any area of the state.

VDOT’s Customer Service Center is open 24 hours a day to answer questions and take reports of roadway hazards at 1-800-367-7623.
