With temperatures dropping and a few snowflakes flying in North Bend this week, the City would like to remind residents of snowplow routes, as well as the steps they can take to assist Public Works crews when winter weather strikes, and City snowplows hit the streets.
To understand the order in which City streets are plowed, please see the 2021/2022 City of North Bend Snowplow Route Map, which details Priority 1, 2, and 3 routes and priority access point locations. The City added an additional snowplow to its fleet this year to improve efficiency in managing street treatment during snow events.
Please note, according to policy, the City does NOT use anti-icer/de-icer on streets out of caution for the Snoqualmie aquifer (located directly beneath many City roads), drinking water quality, and potential adverse impact to public health. The City’s sand does have salt mixed within it, though, which expedites snow/ice thaw.
Tips to keep City streets accessible for snowplows to ensure roads are cleared for motorists:
