VDOT driveway shoveling tips: "The plows push to the right so shovel to the right coming out of your garage. Dig out a 10 ft. area to the left of your driveway to avoid the re-fill when they come through repeatedly. Park on the odd numbered side of the street or better yet in your driveways. Allow plenty of room for the plow to come through."
How VDOT clears subdivisions in northern Virginia
A neighborhood street is considered passable when a path is drivable (with caution) for an average passenger vehicle. The road will not be cleared curb-to-curb or to bare pavement, and may remain snow-packed, uneven and rutted (especially following any refreeze). Chemicals are not typically used in subdivisions, but crews sand hills, curves and intersections as needed to provide traction. For most storms, one snowplow pass, about eight to ten feet wide, is made.
