Check snow removal information in the D.C. region

3:10 p.m. UPDATE: The Arlington County link was broken earlier but we have made repairs here at Get There Central.

Original post: The Capital Weather Gang predicts snow will continue throughout most of the day. Most of the area is under a winter storm warning until 4 a.m. Sunday. Snow-filled residential streets usually are secondary to major routes. Here is some information on snow removal and where you can turn for help if you need an area cleared once the snow trails off. Keep in mind that in most jurisdictions, property owners are responsible for clearing adjacent sidewalks after a snowstorm.

  • Arlington County's snow removal information is here. In the past, officials have said the hilly terrain in sections A, C, and D means it takes longer to clear those areas.
  • The Viriginia Department of Transportation is responsible for snow removal in Fairfax County.
  • Track snow plows in the District here. The District Department of Information checks tweets sent to DDOTDC. You can also call the Mayor's Call Center at 311 or complete a form on the Web site.
  • Check Montgomery County snow removal here. Check to make sure the county is responsible for you street, and not one of the local jurisdictions or the state of Maryland, which plows numbered state routes. Here is a link with more information on who clears snow. You can report the problem to Montgomery County using this link or by calling 240-777-6000.
  • Prince George's County snow information is here.
  • State of Maryland snow information
