If you live on one of Arlington’s many narrow roadways, you should have received a postcard with tips heading into this winter. Residents on cul-de-sacs will want to pay particular attention as such roads are particularly tricky to clear during and after a big snowstorm.
Following this simple advice will make life easier for you, your neighbors and the County while digging out from any snowstorm.
When big snow is in the forecast, a little coordination could win you and your neighbors some wonderful snow swag. We’re looking for photographic proof of a narrow street clear of parked cars or even parked to just to one side during/after a storm. The longer the stretch of cleared roadway, the better the winnings. Winter snow-fighting gear courtesy of Arlington’s Twins Ace Hardware. Prize packages may include vintage Arlington County reusable straws and ice cream scoops, but supplies are limited.
Coordination is key and the street must be on the County’s official list of designated narrow roadways. Post photographs to @ArlingtonDES on X or @ArlingtonDES on Facebook. Provide street name and block number.
Note: Gear will be delivered to winners in time for the next storm.
