VDOT Plowing Update

The past few days I have been in touch with Virginia Department of Transportation staff regarding snow removal efforts throughout Mt. Vernon and Northern Virginia.

VDOT has been working around the clock since Friday's storm to clear roads throughout Northern Virginia. Monday and Tuesday, VDOT was able to focus on residential streets and secondary roads.

With the new snow accumulation from last night and today, VDOT is now refocusing efforts on keeping primary thoroughfares and the interstates open. As the main arteries are cleared, VDOT staff and contractors will return to clear subdivisions and side streets. More information from VDOT is available at the link below.

If you have questions or concerns about the plowing efforts, please call my Legislative Aide, Christopher Bea, at 804.698.1044 and we will call VDOT to see what the status is on your street.

Again, here is information regarding problems with electricity service.

Fairfax County has also set up a page of helpful links on dealing with the storm:
