Attend The March 16 Snow Summit
Tuesday, March 9, 2010

March 10, 2009

Dear Friend,

Many residents of the district contacted me during and after the recent snowstorms related to getting their streets plowed. It was very helpful in both identifying the problem areas, as well as determining why certain areas were neglected and how we can help VDOT better respond in the future.

Given these concerns, I wanted to let you know about the upcoming "snow summit," hosted by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors' Transportation Committee that I will be attending along with others from our Northern Virginia delegation as well as our Supervisors - here is the information:

Tuesday, March 16, 2010
3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Board Auditorium
Fairfax County Government Center
12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax, VA 22035

The summit will assess what worked well and what did not, at both the state level and the county level during this winter's massive snowstorms. The summit will include representatives of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the county's public safety agencies, Fairfax County Public Schools and the county's Facilities Management Department. The meeting may also be viewed on television live on Channel 16.

We also now will be dealing with "pothole season." As we previously reported, Governor McDonnell declared a pothole blitz for the month of March. He has directed VDOT to focus on patching the thousands of potholes across the state due to this winter's blasts of snow, ice and rain. For the month of March, pothole repair will be VDOT's top priority. The Governor has requested that citizens help identify potholes. To report a pothole, visit www.VirginiaDOT.org or call VDOT's Highway Helpline at 800-367-7623. If you wish to cc us on any email correspondence, then we can also follow up with VDOT as well.

I look forward to seeing you in the District as we complete our session here in Richmond. Please join us for the "Snow Summit" or send us information that you would like us to share.
