Thursday Noon I just drove all three sections (in a Toyota all-wheel drive) and roads are passable but down hills are very tricky. Downshift rather than brake to slow down, keep speeds low and please make sure your headlights are on and your nonfreezing windshield washer is topped off.
The Snow Removal Team is making one more pass and then will head home to rest and be back early morning to put down another layer of salt/sand mix. The pre-treatment definitely helped last night so will continue to add this to our snow prep list.
We only had one car getting eaten by ditch and that was at Aquia and Anchor Cove during the night last night – no injuries. Richmond Drive will remain closed but John Paul Jones is good to go for now.
Blowing snow and falling temps are going to make driving after dark tonight and early tomorrow morning treacherous so please get where you’re going tonight and leave later tomorrow morning if you can. High winds will result in single digit wind chills through Saturday. On that note the business office will be closing at 4:00 today (Thur) and opening at 11:00 tomorrow (Fri) to insure the safety of staff.
Conditions will be posted early tomorrow morning on social media and aquiaharbour.org. If you get stranded call the Gate and they will send the duty officer to assist you. 540-659-5224
