21 Jan Snow & Ice on Our Village Roads
When We Have Significant Amounts of Ice and/or Snow:
- Keep a bucket of sand and a bag of rock salt on hand to treat your front steps and walk.
- Roads in Fearrington Village are cleared by the state, Fitch Creations and FHA are NOT responsible for clearing or treating Fearrington roads. The state gives priority to clearing main highways first, so patience will be necessary for the state secondary roads in the village.
- Small neighborhood HOAs (service groups) are responsible for maintaining their own streets and are, therefore, responsible for any winter storm clearing or treatment they may feel is necessary or advisable.
- To locate which village roads are state roads and which streets are maintained by which neighborhood service groups, see this streets and roads table.
- In most instances, residents should plan on having limited driving conditions and possibly slippery walking conditions for 12 – 48 hours following relatively rare instances of heavy snow and/or ice; conditions typically improve quickly within that time frame.
- Do not park your vehicle(s) on the edge of a village state road during snow and ice clearing events (see the hot-linked table above to locate which village roads are state roads). The state will not plow or treat a village road that is strewn with parked vehicles making is difficult for their equipment operators.
