Hunter MIll District Transportation Advisory Council
The HMD TAC was originally established as the Reston TAC in cooperation with our state elected representatives, Senator Janet Howell, and Delegate Ken Plum, to bring elected officials and members of the business and civic community together to meet regularly on community transportation issues and identify needed funding. The scope of the Council was expanded to include all of Hunter Mill District. The TAC meets frequently with staff representation from a variety of state and local-level transit representatives. Topics include road and transit (including Fairfax Connector and Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project), trails and sidewalks, public safety legislative and funding information and project status.

VDOT is responsible for clearing roads when it snows. VDOT's goal is to have all roads passable within 48 hours after a storm ends. Interstates, primary roads, and major secondary roads that connect localities, fire stations, employment hubs, schools, hospitals, and public facilities are plowed first. With a big storm, it may be several days before you see a plow on your residential street.
