With continued freezing temperatures and a potential for light snow and freezing rain this week, the City would like to remind residents of snowplow routes, as well as the steps you can take to assist Public Works crews when winter weather strikes.
To understand the order in which City streets are plowed, please see the 2023/2024 Snowplow Route Map which details Priority 1, 2, and 3 routes and priority access point locations.
In consideration of public health and our environment, the City refrains from the heavy use of chemicals and geo-melts on our roadways. This is done out of caution for the Snoqualmie aquifer (located directly beneath many city roads), drinking water quality, and potential adverse impact on public health.
The City uses two de-icer materials: a sand/salt mix and Ice-Slicer. Crews closely monitor local weather systems and deploy the materials according to the Snow Removal Policy, which factors in cost, environmental impact, location, and public safety. Learn more about the De-Icer Program by viewing the Snow Removal Policy.
