FIRST SNOW TO IMPACT ROADS STARTING FRIDAY PM

Forecast affects entire district, plan for slushy conditions
FAIRFAX— Virginia Department of Transportation and contract crews are preparing for northern Virginia’s first dose of winter weather, from Friday evening through Sunday morning.
Crews will complete two days of anti-icing of the roads by midday Friday. Where the storm is currently forecasted to arrive late Friday, there is the potential to see precipitation towards the tail end of rush hour. Drivers are asked to continue to monitor the forecast, and always plan for inclement conditions.
Once fully mobilized this evening, please watch for crews as they stage along roads prior to the storm. Crews will treat roads with salt and sand as needed once the storm begins Friday night, plow in areas where and if snow totals reach two inches, and will remain on duty throughout the course of the storm.
Drivers are asked to:
• Continue to check weather forecasts, as storm timing and intensity can change. Pavement temperatures are expected to drop below freezing tonight.
• Do not overdrive conditions; reduce speeds and use headlights.
• Be patient; remember that many fellow drivers are not comfortable driving in adverse weather conditions.
• Take it slow on bridges, ramps, and overpasses, and other known trouble spots.
• Ensure gas tanks and windshield wiper fluid tanks are full.

In 2017, our Victim Services Section worked over 300 cases involving child victims, as well as child witnesses of domestic and sexual violence. Many of these children will not to get to celebrate the holidays this year due to the financial burden that comes with being a victim of crime.

Your generous donation of gift cards will help those families most impacted by crime bring a smile to the faces of their children who have had a tough road.

**Herndon-Monroe Parking Garage Entrance Closure to Impact Commuters Nov. 10-26, 2017**

Due to construction of the new Fairfax County commuter parking garage at the future Metrorail Silver Line’s Herndon Station site, the access road from Sunrise Valley Drive to the Herndon-Monroe park and ride facility will be closed starting Friday. Nov. 10, through Sunday, Nov. 26, 2017.

*Commuters who wish to use the existing Herndon-Monroe garage during this time will need to enter and exit the facility via the Dulles Toll Road (Rt. 267). This detour will require drivers to pay a $1.00 toll upon exiting the garage with an E-Z Pass or exact change.

VDOT: RIGGED AND READY FOR WINTER
Crews, equipment, materials and online tools prepared in northern Virginia

FAIRFAX—The Virginia Department of Transportation’s resources are in place for when winter arrives in northern Virginia.

Almost $84.9 million is set aside for snow removal in northern Virginia this winter, and the agency’s state and contracted fleet is ready with more than 4,500 pieces of equipment. More than 120,000 tons of salt, 250,000 gallons of brine, and 25,000 tons of sand are on hand and will be restocked regularly through the season.

Those resources will be used to plow and treat 13,585 lane miles across Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William and Arlington counties (Arlington maintains its own secondary roads). More than 11,000 of those lane miles are secondary and subdivision streets.

“It is never too early to prepare,” said Lauren Mollerup, P.E., VDOT’s maintenance engineer for northern Virginia, at today’s annual snow briefing. “Throughout the year we plan for our winter equipment, materials, and staffing, and today is a good reminder for everyone at home to prepare too—to check vehicles and emergency kits, to consider alternate commute and telework plans, and to become familiar with our online resources.”
Resource Reminders

Residents are asked to bookmark and keep virginiadot.org/novaemergency on hand for news releases, important messages, frequently asked questions and links to many other resources, including:

Fairfax Connector Promotes Pedestrian Safety Starting Oct. 30, 2017

As days continue to get shorter in the fall, the conclusion of Daylight Saving Time this weekend will create even trickier conditions when it comes to visibility in the morning and early evening. To help drivers, bicyclists, pedestrians and all those who share the roads, staff of the Fairfax Connector have scheduled special outreach events through Thursday, Nov. 9, to distribute reflective flashers. Dates and times will be announced via the Connector's social media channels, including Facebook and Twitter. Commuters will be able to pick up a "Be smart. Be Safe. Be Seen." flasher at select Fairfax County transit centers and high-traffic areas (while supplies last), including:
• Reston Town Center
• Vienna Metro
• Franconia-Springfield Metro
• Wiehle-Reston East Metro
• Lorton VRE Station
• Richmond Highway and Bedford Drive (Alexandria)
• Pentagon Transit Center

Fairfax Connector reminds drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists to be especially alert before dawn and after dusk, when the nearly 75 percent of pedestrian crash fatalities occur.* Pedestrians should follow these safety tips:
• Use sidewalks, crosswalks, and (where available) pedestrian signal buttons and indicators
• Walk on the shoulder facing oncoming traffic if there is no sidewalk
• Never assume a driver sees you. Make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of vehicles
• Wear reflective materials in the early morning and at night
• Use a flashlight to walk safely in the dark and to signal bus operators
• Don't get distracted by your electronic devices or headphones. Eyes up!
