A wintry mix of rain and snow is forecast to affect portions of the Fredericksburg area this afternoon and evening, which may reduce driver visibility and cause road conditions to quickly deteriorate.
Drivers are asked to closely monitor news and weather reports before starting a trip.
VDOT crews have mobilized in the Fredericksburg area with trucks in position to treat roads with sand and salt to reduce icing and improve traction. Crews will begin plowing once 2 inches of snow has accumulated on the road surface.
Monitor Fredericksburg Area Traffic and Road Conditions in Real-Time:
Trucks carrying treatment materials will circulate first on Interstate 95 and interstate ramps, primary roads and key secondary roads to respond to any icy or hazardous road conditions that develop.
Motorists are advised to be alert for potentially slick road conditions. If necessary, travelers should be prepared to adjust travel plans.
Plan to allow extra travel time, reduce your speed, wear your seat belt, and increase following distance between vehicles. Use additional caution while traveling on bridges, ramps and overpasses, which freeze first due to lower surface temperatures, as well as on roads carrying lighter traffic volumes.
