While VDOT has been busy working to treat primary roads, temps will be so low tonight that certain spots will likely freeze. We can’t urge enough to use caution when you have to commute Tuesday.
The left and center northbound lanes of Interstate 95 are closed at mm 80 (Hermitage Rd./Rt. 161) due to a crash, according to VDOT. CBS 6 reporter Jake Burns witnessed the accident. He said the truck flipped in the northbound lanes.
Roads currently in moderate/severe condition meaning that snow & ice are covering major portions of the pavement. Practice extreme caution.—
