Plow on Ridge Heights Road, Sunday Jan. 24, 2016

As of about 11:30 a.m. Sunday, snowplows have worked on most of Reston’s main roads. The side streets and townhouse parking lots could be a work in progress though into Monday, Tuesday and beyond.

Help Reston Now readers know before they go: Tell us what your street looks like or, if you go out, what the Reston Town Center or your neighborhood village center looks like.

Post comments and or/picture below.

Drive safely, Reston.

    Check VDOT plow status here:


    • Lawyers

      iPad users can select the “Full website” option in the menu. Best usage is with “Find Address” option (i.e. glade rd, reston). You can watch the plows drive past your street in 5 minute intervals

  • Steve

    The VDOT link only shows a camera view at three static locations. It is not helpful beyond that.

    • Greg

      Don’t know what you are looking at, but it works for me and shows plow status, not cameras. Upper left corner is an address box, so use that for Reston streets of interest.

        It must be a mobile device thing. Doesn’t work on iPad. In which case they shouldnt
        advertise it.

        • BBurns

          Using an iPad with no problems for VDOT plowing and camera site. There aren’t any cameras right in Reston that I’ve seen – lots toward DC on the B’way, 66, Route 7, 123, etc., and couple just north of us.

          No plows anywhere near us or any streets off of Glade on Lake Audubon’s eastern side. A plow was here Friday late afternoon, nothing since. S’okay, grateful for electricity and cookies throughout.

          • BBurns

            Oops – south and east. Mostly no plows anywhere within 1/2 to 1 mile south, east, west, except occasionally one heading down Glade or Lawyers, and around South Lakes shopping center and a couple streets that direction, if the VDOT map Is kept up to date.

  • Constance (Connie) Hartke

    Just did a walkabout from Quartermaster soccer field down Acton to the Glade stream near the new beaver dam. Quartermaster has been plowed at least once since beginning of storm. Upon return a car was stuck at entrance off Glade. Glade is well plowed. Acton not plowed, ever. RA paths have been plowed twice, I believe. Are ready for a 3rd round. RA paths till good for cross country skiing. We were passed by 2 skiers along Glade Stream path.

    • Constance (Connie) Hartke

      No plows came through as of 9:30 a.m. here or on the side streets near me on Glade.

      • BBurns

        Nothing around here or on neighboring streets this side of Glade either, Connie. You can see on the VDOT plow map there aren’t any nearby either.

  • jfkh

    Uplands area is mostly plowed. RA paths not plowed yet. Lots of good sledding and huge snow piles!

  • Rich

    Wheile looks OK by ff county Pkwy. 1.5 lanes each way. Barely a lane on Shaker Woods rd. Ff county Pkwy is passable, but missing lanes and the snow piles are gigantic. I don’t know where they are going to push the rest. RTC is OK, but mostly still snow packed. Sidewalks are surprisingly clear. My driveway, dry. 🙂

    My side of Lake Newport Road (Armstrong Elementary School side) all the way up to North Point has been cleared up enough for cars to pass through, it has been so from Saturday. Attaching a picture here taken on Saturday early afternoon.

  • Sridhar Ganesan

    North Point was open yesterday on a limited basis. Giant was open, Glory Days was open on a limited basis (one waiter, one cook, but one could still get food after a little bit of wait-time, I suppose), Great China, the Chinese place.

  • Bburns

    No streets plowed anywhere nearby and no plows nearby, as per the VDOT map. Lake Audubon streets off of Glade – Timberhead/Compass Point, etc. But some RA paths (Timberhead to Compass Point) appear to be plowed.
