Snow plowing in Alexandria:

Roads are plowed by priority, with primary and snow emergency routes cleared first, followed by secondary routes and then residential streets.

During a major storm, it may only be possible to plow roads so that they are passable for emergency vehicles, rather than down to the pavement across all travel lanes. '

Use the City’s 
SnowReport tracking system to check on plowing priorities, the status of your street, or to submit a concern. Residents and businesses can help by staying off the roads during and after snowfall, not parking on posted snow emergency routespromptly clearing sidewalks and entrancesnot shoveling snow into the street, and clearing snow from around fire hydrants and storm drains.
