Snow Plowing in Fairfax, VA: What Do Changes in Laws and Technology Mean for You?

Someday in the not-too-distant future, you may be able to pinpoint when and where a snowstorm is tracking. With the press of a button you’ll custom-order snow plowing efforts in Fairfax County, VA right from your toasty warm living room. For now, you’ll have to contract for snow plowing and ice removal services with a reputable snow removal company the old-fashioned way.

Before you do, let’s look at the big picture on snow plowing in Fairfax County, VA:

  • The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has legal responsibility for plowing snow and ice from public roads (marked with a route number sign posted at intersections) on a priority basis (interstate first, primary, then secondary roads) in Fairfax County.
  • After emergency routes and priority routes are plowed, the Fairfax County snow plowing crews begin plowing neighborhood roads and subdivisions.
  • If there are more than two inches of frozen precipitation VDOT brings their virtual snow plowing tracking system online (novasnowplowing.virginia.gov) to provide real-time information about the progress of snow plowing efforts in Fairfax County, VA. Here’s a link to a two minutes VDOT video that shows how it works.
  • Note: Current laws about snow plowing in Fairfax County, VA do not require homeowners, landlords or businesses to clear sidewalks of snow and ice to allow safe passage. On December 10th The Fairfax Times reported Fairfax County transportation officials are discussing changes to the law that would make snow plowing and sidewalk clearing mandatory on private private, both commercial and residential. Could be a game changer.

According to FairfaxNews.com Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William counties contain 17,737 “lane miles” that VDOT plows. Thankfully, in Northern Virginia VDOT operates dual snow plowing programs in Fairfax County, VA that deploy simultaneously when accumulation totals reach 2” - one for interstates and highways, and a second dedicated to snow plowing in neighborhoods and subdivisions.
