On the night cited in the letter, UMW’s handling of recent snow leaves commuters on icy ground, university staff drove and walked on College Avenue and on all of the university’s roads throughout the night. UMW crews were assessing and treating roads from 5 p.m. Tuesday to 8 a.m. Wednesday. In our estimation, all traffic areas were free of bare ice, all had been treated at least once, and we believed they were fit to be used by commuters. The administration takes this responsibility very seriously.
