Morning Poll: Grade Arlington’s Snow Removal Effort

Snow plow 3/3/14 (file photo)The first significant snowstorm of the season was the first big test for Arlington’s new snow removal policy.

Approved this past summer, the new policy had snow crews clearing major roads and neighborhood streets concurrently, a change from the previous practice of only tackling neighborhood streets after arterial streets were totally clear.

The old policy led to complaints (and snow vigilantism) from residents that by the time crews got to their neighborhood, the snow had become so compacted or icy that it was hard for the plows to fully remove.

So how did the snow crews do? Let us know below. (As of 8 a.m., the snow clearing effort was still underway, with crews in the fourth and final phase, cleaning up remaining trouble spots.)

For reference, check out the previous grades for the snow removal effort after winter storms in 2015 and 2016.
