Hunter Mill District Snow Removal



RESTON, Va. -- The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is gearing up for the winter season in the Northern Virginia District. There have been several changes since last year’s winter season planning. VDOT has increased the amount of snow removal equipment from 2,800 pieces to 3,400 pieces with 2500 dedicated for subdivisions/ local roads. Staff has allocated an additional $19 million dollars to the Northern Virginia District for the winter season. 

One of the new innovations VDOT has added to snow plow trucks are automatic vehicle locators or AVLs. These devices enable staff to track snow plow trucks while working for quality assurance and increased flexibility for emergency situations. There are 1200 vehicles within the fleet that participate within the AVL pilot program. VDOT will introduce a new website that will allow the public to monitor truck locations within 6 minute inter-vals. This tool will be available when trucks will be plowing in subdivision/residential streets. VDOT will be de-veloping a fact sheet in the coming weeks to address specific questions about the snow removal process. For additional information, please visit http://www.virginiadot.org or contact the Hunter Mill District office.
