Still looking at a snowy street? Here's help.

Snow removal crews around the region are focusing on any snow-filled residential streets now that major routes have been cleared. If you're still facing a snowy street, here are some places to turn:

In Arlington County: Take a look at the county's snow plow map or report a problem on this Web site. Officials said the hilly terrain in sections A, C, and D on the snow map means it takes longer to clear those areas.

Track snow plows in the District on this snow map. You can also send the District Department of Transportation a tweet via Twitter, or call 311 to report a problem. DDOT says, in most cases, it does not plow alleys.

The Viriginia Department of Transportation is responsible for snow removal in Fairfax County. You can call VDOT at 703-383-8368 for more information. The agency's snow removal information is listed here.

Montgomery County residents can report problem areas here or by calling 240-777-6000. Here is the county's snow removal map.

Prince George's County snow information is here.

I know this storm was a whopper. I've lived in upstate NY, Michigan, NJ, so don't expect miracles. However, I wish DC would plow better at bus stops. I take buses every workday. None of the stops were cleared to the curb. There's no excuse of parked cars preventing that. It's bad enough that the sidewalks at bus stops aren't cleared, but having passengers cross 5-10 feet of mounds of frozen slush and snow is dangerous.

How about places that pedestrians can call in lack of clean sidewalks? There are several places along Washington Blvd. in Arlington that have mounds of snow instead of cleared sidewalks because businesses have been negligent in clearing - meaning that pedestrians are forced to walk in the street. Near the Central Library is the county that is falling down on the job (or rather, pedestrians slipping and sliding and falling down because 10th St. sidewalks aren't clear along Quincy Park's south boundary).

There was a link on the Arlington Web site earlier for reporting problems, but it doesn't work anymore. I would call the snow removal hot line at 703-228-6485. I called earlier and was told they would take those complaints.
