I-95 Motorists in Virginia Asked to Avoid Travel Today in Fredericksburg Area

Driving conditions are hazardous this morning in the Fredericksburg area and western portions of the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula, with snow covering large portions of Interstate 95 and primary roads.

Motorists are advised to avoid nonessential travel today to allow crews to make progress plowing and treating roads.

Lower-volume secondary roads and subdivisions streets in the Fredericksburg area and western Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula are in severe condition this morning, and are completely snow-covered.

On the eastern end of the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula, primary roads are in minor condition, with some bare pavement visible and isolated patches of snow and ice. Locations where primary road conditions are minor include Richmond, Lancaster, Gloucester, Mathews, and Middlesex counties.

VDOT crews are making repeated passes on Interstate 95 and primary roads to push snow off the road as quickly as it falls. Snow began falling shortly before midnight, and has continued through the early morning hours. Snow is forecast to change to freezing rain later today, which is anticipated to cause icy, slick road conditions.

VDOT crews will remain at work 24 hours a day, in rotating 12-hour shifts, to plow roads and apply sand, salt and treatment chemicals. Crews will remain at work until all roads are passable and safe for travel.

Virginia Declares State of Emergency in Response to the Forcasted Winter Storm

Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency, an action that authorizes state agencies to assist local governments in responding to a major winter storm that is expected to impact the Commonwealth through Sunday.

In declaring a state of emergency, the governor authorizes state agencies to identify and position resources for quick response anywhere they are needed in Virginia. This action does not apply to individuals or private businesses.

Governor McAuliffe urges Virginians to prepare for this major winter storm, which could dump up to two feet of snow in central and northern regions. Wind gusts of up to 50 mph, sleet and freezing rain could result in downed trees, power outages and blocked roads.

“Keeping Virginians safe in the event of severe weather is our top concern – that is why Virginia began preparing for severe winter weather yesterday by ordering more than 500 vehicles out to pretreat roads in Northern Virginia,” said Governor McAuliffe. “All Virginians should take the threat of this storm seriously and take necessary precautions now to ensure they are prepared for travel disruptions and possible power outages during a cold weather period.”

“VDOT is prepared with crews, equipment and materials to treat roads in advance of the storm and will work throughout the storm to plow roads,” said Transportation Secretary Aubrey Layne. “Driving conditions during the storm are expected to be hazardous and motorists are urged to stay off the roads until the storm passes.”

Virginia DOT Ready for Massive Winter Storm Anticipated to Have Severe Impacts This Week

Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews are in full deployment mode for a statewide winter storm that is expected to bring heavy snow fall, including freezing rain, with the height of the storm to hit Friday.

“Crews are in 24-hour operations with a significant force of crew members, equipment and materials and we are continuing to treat roads with anti-icing materials in advance of the next storm,” said VDOT Commissioner Charlie Kilpatrick. “With a storm of this magnitude, driving conditions will be extremely hazardous. I urge motorists to plan ahead, monitor weather conditions and stay off the roads during the storm.”

Currently there are some slick road conditions in the southwestern and northern regions of Virginia. Motorists should watch for icy patches, particularly on bridges and overpasses.

Crews are treating roads with anti-icing materials.

VDOT is preparing for total accumulations of one to three feet of snow across the state, with sleet and freezing rain in some areas. Two to three inches of snow per hour is expected during the worst of the storm Friday evening through Saturday morning. Motorists should not travel during the storm.

When the storm hits, crews work to clear interstates and primary roads first, then major secondary roads with vital emergency and public facilities, and then other secondary roads and subdivision streets. Crews focus their efforts on those roads that carry the most traffic.

In northern Virginia, trucks are pre-staged in subdivisions when two or more inches are forecasted. Throughout the storm, crews work on interstates, high-volume roads, and in subdivisions concurrently.

Night Work Planned on I-95 Southbound Near Fredericksburg Next Week

The Virginia Department of Transportation reports that during the overnight hours on Tuesday, January 19 and Wednesday, January 20 motorists will be restricted to one lane on Interstate 95 southbound at mile marker 131 located just north of Exit 130 (Route 3) in Fredericksburg.

Beginning at 9:30 p.m. each night one lane will be closed followed by a second lane at 10 p.m. All lanes will be open by 5 a.m.

In addition, the entrance and exit ramp to the Fredericksburg Safety Rest Area and Welcome Center located at mile marker 131 will be narrowed from 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night. The facility will remain open.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will be installing a containment system under the Fall Hill Avenue bridge in preparation for the bridge demolition phase of the project. The containment system will shield the interstate from any loose debris during the demolition.

The old Fall Hill Avenue bridge will be demolished after traffic is switched to the new bridge. The traffic switch is expected to take place in February, weather permitting.

This work is in connection with the Fall Hill Avenue Widening and I-95 Bridge Replacement Project.
