Dominion Hardscapes is a Virginia Class A Licensed Contractor
According to the the VDOT snow removal webpage, snow plowing in Fairfax County, VA is the responsibility of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). VDOT specifically states that “if a street within a townhouse, condominium or business/commercial complex is not posted with a state route number, it is a private street that is the responsibility of the homeowner/condominium association or property management company to clear. ... If streets in newly built subdivisions or subdivisions that are still under construction are not yet posted with state route numbers, they are probably still under bond and are the responsibility of the developer to clear.”
Are you a Fairfax land developer or builder? Have you purchased a property on a private road not serviced by VDOT? If you have private access to your property that demands snow plowing in Fairfax County, VA, you can invest in expensive equipment and spend the time to remove your own snow, but that isn’t practical or possible for everyone. With the Board of Supervisors Transportation Committee talking about introducing changes to the snow plowing laws in Fairfax County, VA, this could become a much larger issue for the average citizen or local business.
As of January, 2015, there is no law in Fairfax County regarding responsibility for clearing snow-covered, dangerously icy walkways, private entryways, sidewalks or any other surface or conditions that make pedestrian transit unsafe. Should the law be changed, you may need to contract for the services of a professional snow removal contractor for prompt, dependable, efficient snow removal and snow plowing in Fairfax County, VA.
