Snow Removal
Winter Weather November Through March
Town of Vienna roads are subject to freezing rain, ice and snow during the late fall and winter months. Normally, winter weather is likely from November through March. The Street Maintenance Division, under the management of the street maintenance supervisor, the operations superintendent and the public works director, is responsible for keeping vehicular traffic moving on Vienna's nearly 65 miles of roads during and following inclement winter weather conditions.

Change in Snow Removal Operations
Snow removal operations may be suspended or reduced if:
  • Conditions threaten safety of snow removal teams
  • Equipment suffers irreparable malfunctions

The street maintenance supervisor, the operations superintendent and the public works director each have the authority to suspend snow removal operations if necessary for the safety and well-being of the staff members or it is no longer practical or cost effective to continue operations at the time.

Primary Streets Receiving Top Priority During Winter Weather
Material application, which is the process of applying abrasives and chemicals to the street surfaces to help maintain passable road conditions, begins immediately at the onset of a winter storm. Plowing begins when snow has accumulated two inches or more, with primary streets receiving top priority.
