UPDATED: County Facilities Closing at Noon

Snow in Pentagon City on 1/21/14

(Updated at 11:25 a.m.) Arlington County government offices, facilities, public schools, pools, community centers and courts are closing at noon today due to the winter storm currently bearing down on the area.

All afternoon and evening activities at Arlington public schools  have been canceled.

The county says it’s in a “Phase 2 Alert” for snow removal. Crews are ready to treat and plow primary and secondary roads that may become snow-covered.

Trash collection has been suspended for the remainder of the day.

“Trash and recycling services have been suspended for Tuesday, Jan. 21 due to winter weather,” said Arlington’s Dept. of Environmental Services. “Please remove your carts from the curb for the safety and efficiency of our snow plows and crews.”

The City of Falls Church has declared a snow emergency and is ordering residents to remove cars on snow emergency routes or face towing and fines. Arlington so far has not declared a snow emergency.
