Town of Herndon Snow Removal Procedures

Live in the town of Herndon limits? Here's what you need to know about cars, sidewalks and the snow.

If you live in the town of Herndon, the town has its own procedures for snow removal that you may want to know. 

The Town of Herndon's Department of Public Works is responsible for snow removal on roads within the town limits. Main arterial routes are given first priority for salting, sanding and plowing before other streets are addressed. 

Here's what residents need to know when it snows in Herndon: 

PARKING - Avoid parking your vehicle on the street and in cul-de-sacs when a snowstorm is predicted to hit. Vehicles parked on streets makes it difficult or impossible for DPW trucks to remove snow. If your car is parked on a snow emergency route, it may be towed. 

SIDEWALKS - Residents should clear sidewalks near their business or home. DPW does not clear snow from sidewalks unless they are near schools or critical road crossings. Don't shovel sidewalks and driveways into the right of way or it may result in snow being pushed back into a driveway by snow plows. Don't block storm drains or fire hydrants with snow. 

When snow is expected to hit, the Town of Herndon's Public Works Operations Center is manned continuously. They can be contacted at 703-435-6860 during snow removal operations. 

Additionally, the Herndon Police Department is available 24 hours a day at 703-435-6846, and in an emergency residents should call 911. 

Normal Herndon DPW business hours are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. DPW can be reached by email at publicworks@herndon-va.gov
