Downtown Neighborhood Road Condition Crowdsourcing

Share what you know about the roads.

The Richmond Snow Plowing Status Map is wonderful in theory. In reality it doesn’t seem to be accurate. I find it hard to believe that not a single route has been completed as shown above.

So let’s find out what’s going on out there and help each other out.

What streets do you know are plowed or treated? I can tell you that that my streets are still a mess and haven’t seen a plow or sand truck. That’s not entirely true a plow drove down our street but didn’t put his plow down so wasn’t very helpful.

In the comments tell us which roads are good to go and if you feel like it vent about the roads that are still snowed in.

    As of 11 AM, Main and Broad street were beautifully plowed (one lane each direction). The highways were all clear. 25th was still an ugly slushy mess and Franklin St near there was just an ice sheet. I saw a truck spreading sand lower down.

    E. Cary St. And Dock street haven’t been touched.

    It seems the city of Richmond never plowed the streets down in shock about him. The main roads are great, but you can’t get to them because all of the side streets are mess. Haven’t seen a single plow, not sure how many they have. E. Cary is unplowed, along with all of the streets south of Main. The map isn’t accurate, and they don’t even show us as a “planned” neighborhood.

    Canal between 14th and 12th is a disaster and so is the entire length of Dock St. Both roads need some serious attention to deal with folks going back to work tomorrow.

    The city website states….”Per City Code, Sec. 90-42, you must clear the snow on sidewalks adjacent to your property within 6 hours of snow stopping or by 11:00 a.m. the next day if snow continues to fall through the night. City code holds property owners and occupants responsible for doing so.” Are they kidding? I can’t even get to my business because the streets haven’t been touched 2 and a half days after the snow stopped falling.

  6. 15th Street is a sheet of ice. Cars are totally stuck. Really hoping that the city has the decency to not ticket those of us stuck in 2 hour parking spots.
