    Default W&OD Trail Snow Removal

    As excited as I am about snow removal on the Bluemont Junction trail, I really need the W&OD to be cleared to continue to bike home in the winter from work. Any experienced hands want to offer advice on how to encourage the NVRPA to either plow or treat it to allow Arlington to do so? It is a heavily used commuter route.

    Plowing and treatment aren't perfect on day one. But I know from experience in Shirlington (where the County does plow and treat the trails in Shirlington Park and Lucky Run Park) that it speeds the drying and clearing process by days.

    I have written the Parks Authority today asking them to take action or allow Arlington to do so. But I suspect it won't be effective without a lot of input from bike riders.

    It sounds like NVRPA may clear snow themselves. http://regionalparks.blogspot.com/20...n-w-trail.html

    Yes, they sent me the link. Sounds good. Especially since they'll start in Arlington. The blower should do the trick.
