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.
