The federal government is closed, and Arlington schools, government offices, courts and facilities are closed today due to expected snow.

Sleet is falling in parts of Arlington as of 7:30, as temperatures continue to fall. Conditions are expected to deteriorate later this morning.

Due to the expected snow, ART buses are operating on a modified schedule.

“Due to expected weather conditions (today) Thursday, March 5 – ART is running a Saturday service level on routes 41, 42, 45, 51, 77 & 87,” ART said in an email. “We will continue to provide updates as things change. Please be safe, and have a wonderful day.”

Solid waste collection, meanwhile, has been suspended for the day.

All trash and recycling services are postposed today, Thursday, Mar. 5, due to inclement winter weather. Collection services will resume when County offices reopen and will continue until all trash and recycling is collected.

Until services resume, remove carts from the right-of-way to allow snow removal crews to clear the roads. The Customer Call Center is closed and will reopen when County offices open.

Arlington County’s website says its snow crews are in a “Phase 2” alert, meaning crews are ready to clear accumulation from main roads.
