VDOT CREWS TO PRE-TREAT ROADS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY

Trucks will apply a pre-treatment salt brine solution to Interstate 95 travel lanes and ramps in the Fredericksburg area between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6

Motorists should be alert for a mobile Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) operation tomorrow to pre-treat Interstate 95 and interstate ramps in the Fredericksburg area in advance of possible winter weather this weekend.

Pre-treatment of I-95 will be underway between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6. Crews will begin pre-treatment on I-95 southbound to reduce afternoon peak travel delays.

On Friday, Dec. 7, VDOT crews will pre-treat primary roads between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Trucks pre-treating I-95 travel together at approximately 35 mph. One truck travels in each of I-95’s three general purpose lanes, forming a straight line across the interstate. The mobile operation is followed by a law enforcement vehicle, which absorbs much of the excess salt emitted by the application process. Slower travel speeds are required to spray the salt brine onto the interstate with precision, and to ensure an adequate amount is absorbed in the pavement.

Roads are expected to remain dry prior to the onset of potential winter weather this weekend, allowing VDOT to pre-treat major travel routes.

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