Snow plows will be tackling secondary roads and subdivisions in the Fredericksburg are Friday, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Still, officials are warning motorists to use caution, reduce speed and allow extra time.

"While major travel routes are clear, drivers will find low-volume secondary roads and subdivision streets in the Fredericksburg area are partially or completely covered in snow and ice-packed," according to a VDOT statement.

Roads that look wet may be coated with ice, especially bridges and overpasses. VDOT crews are treating roads with sand and salt to melt ice and provide additional traction for drivers.

"Crews will return to perform plowing on every state-maintained street to make them passable," according to the VDOT statement. "Subdivision roads will have an 8-foot to 10-foot path, but will not be cleared curb-to-curb and not to bare pavement."
