Leesburg, VA (February 20, 2019) – As of 7 p.m. this evening, Snow Emergency Routes in the Town of Leesburg will no longer be in effect. However, crews will continue to clear snow from the streets through the night.

When Snow Emergency Routes are in effect, no on-street parking is allowed on the following streets:

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

Property owners or occupants, both residential and commercial, are required to remove snow from public sidewalks adjoining their properties within 24 hours of a snowfall. If ice is present and cannot be removed, it should be covered with sand, kitty litter, or a similar substance that will allow safe passage for pedestrians. 

Residents are also requested to clear snow from around fire hydrants and to not shovel snow in front of storm drain inlets. Snow from sidewalks, driveways, and parking areas must not be pushed into the street or other Town right-of-way. For more information about the Town’s snow removal operations, please visit www.leesburgva.gov/snowremoval.
