Snow removal in Pentagon City 2/17/15

About 4-5 inches of snow fell in Arlington Monday night and Tuesday morning.

County crews worked throughout the night and day to clear primary and secondary roads, before starting to tackle neighborhood streets. Compared to past, disruptive snowstorms, they had some things working in their favor:

  • The snow fell overnight, not during a rush hour
  • It was predicted correctly well in advance
  • It was a light, fluffy snow and, because the ground was already cold from the frigid weekend, there was minimal melting and refreezing
  • Schools and the federal government closed for the day, limiting vehicle traffic

Regardless of the circumstances, how would you rate the county’s job in clearing the streets Tuesday?
