Leesburg Reminds Residents About Snow Emergency Routes and Snow Removal Policies

In preparation for the winter weather season, Town officials remind residents and businesses about Town policies for handling snow, sleet, ice and other wintry precipitation.

Snow Emergency Routes.  A snow emergency is declared when two or more inches of snow, sleet or other icy precipitation has accumulated on Town roadways.  When a snow emergency is in effect, all vehicles must be removed from streets designated as Snow Emergency Routes.  Any vehicle not removed from the designated streets when a snow emergency is in effect will be towed at the owner’s expense.  Snow Emergency Routes are:

  • Market Street, from Fairview Street to the Route 7/15 Bypass
  • King Street, from the Union Cemetery to Country Club Drive
  • Loudoun Street, from Liberty Street to Harrison Street

Please see the attached Snow Emergency Route map.
