SNOW SEASON REMINDERS
VDOT is responsible for clearing major streets throughout New Town. However, VDOT places residential neighborhoods as their third priority after interstate highways/snow emergency routes and heavily traveled roads.
The NTRA contracts to plow private roadways (alleys and lanes) after a snow event of about 3 inches. Lesser amounts are left for temperatures to melt.
NTRA homeowners are responsible for clearing their sidewalk areas and driveways.
- Avoid throwing snow into any streets.
- Clear fire hydrant areas if possible.
Most of all, be neighborly. Check on elderly neighbors or anyone who may need help clearing egress from their home.
