- Interstates (I-95 I-66 I-495 etc.)
- High-volume routes (Route 1 Route 28 Prince William Parkway etc.)
- Main thoroughfares in neighborhoods or developments
- Residential streets
VDOT has a new web tool that shows the status of plowing in northern Virginia neighborhoods. The webpage at http://novasnowplowing.virginia.gov activates when two or more inches have accumulated.
