City Working to Get Roads and Services Back ASAP at VBGov.com:

“The first priority is to make passable approximately 900 lane-miles of primary roads and an additional 300 lane-miles of priority streets that access hospitals, fire stations and police stations within 12 hours after snow stops falling,” said Phil Davenport, director of Public Works. “Neighborhood streets are not cleared because parked vehicles and other safety considerations make snow removal from these streets impractical or far too costly for the couple of storms we get each year. The process goes much quicker when citizens refrain from driving and streets are free of traffic.”
