    how about a map of the whole county, showing all of the road closures??

  2. Anonymous says :

    511Virginia.org is reporting Lawyers Road closed due to flooding, but it doesn’t say what part of Lawyers (near what intersection). Do you know?

  3. Robert Avsec (@RobertAvsec57) says :

    Check out Google’s Crisis Response Tools at http://www.google.org/crisisresponse/resources.html to mapping tools that you might find very useful.

  4. Mb says :

    Nice job. Thank you.

    Our road is closed with police tape, but not listed here – Hardwood Lane.

  6. Anonymous says :

    How do we report a closed road? Our road is closed with police tape, but not on this list — hardwood lane in McLean.

  7. Anonymous says :

    Schools open tomorrow?

    Don’t trust the list of re-opened streets! Just talked to my brother who is standing at Woodburn Rd. & Robey speaking with a police officer as a road crew erects a jersey wall . . .

  9. Anonymous says :

    Georgetown Pike @ Swinks Mill is closed according to the list above, but your GIS map does not reflect this? Which is it open or closed?

  10. Teacher says :

    School tomorrow for FCPS?

    • Anonymous says :

      i dont know how we would be able to have school. 90 roads are still closed. and over 54000 people are without power. for safety purposes it would be best to close school. driving on alot of these roads could be very dangerous espcially with all the young drivers

      • Anonymous says :

        How about selectively closing schools. Our community is fine. Way too early in the year to be missing so many days when it isn’t absolutely necessary…young drivers can catch the bus or parents can drive too school. Those of us who have to work have to get back to work.

    With so many trees down, and so many roads close I don’t see how it is safe for children to go to school. Old Dominon and Georgetown Pike are closed in certain areas and I am extremely worried about students driving from Great Falls to school. Additionally there is a tree down in my neighborhood, a bus will not be able to get through.

    What a wonderful job you are doing. Appreciate all the info and the map is a superb addition. Yor hard work is much appreciated.

  13. John Ulfelder says :

    The County did a poor job this morning by failing to alert the local TV traffic reporters about the fact that Old Dominion Drive was still closed at the Beltway in combination with the closing of Georgetown Pike at Old Dominion Drive. It resulted in a morning rush hour nightmare. Be sure and get the word out about the status of both those routes before this evenings rush hour!

  14. Jen Dzwonczyk says :

    Lewinsville Road (7700 block) is still closed…. it certainly DID NOT reopen yesterday.

    A very good job keeping the public informed, much appreciated the road closures and updates.

  16. SusanB says :

    A great start, but this map didn’t include alot of the closures on Tuesday afternoon when I tried to get to my elderly father. You need to do a better job of updating the map in real time for it to be useful. Not sure where the communications link is broken, but the map is of limited use unless it’s up to date. Thanks in advance!
