Snow and ice storms produce an average accumulation of 15 inches annually in Alexandria, generally spread over several events in a typical winter. City staff track potential storms 24 hours per day, and on-call City crews and contractors are available to begin working in 12-hour shifts when winter weather is in the forecast, and continue working on snow removal during and after the storm. Clearing city streets and sidewalks is a difficult process that takes time, hard work, and good communication between residents, business owners, and the City. The City clears snow from 521 lane miles of roadways, 20 miles of publicly owned sidewalks, walkways, and pathways, and 44 acres of municipal parking lots and publicly owned squares. (Typically, alleys and non-municipal parking lots are not part of the City’s snow removal operations.  View this map for snow removal priorities.)
