North Bend Road Conditions Impassable; City Urges People to Stay Home

Snow Plow Route Map

North Bend road condition update by Acting City Administrator Mark Rigos.  

Mother Nature pounded the City with new snow last night between 15-24 inches, making many City streets impassable this morning.  The Public Works maintenance crew worked all night last night to clear off as many streets as possible. 

Priority 1 Routes are still being plowed, but only some roads are reasonably passable.  Priority 2 and 3 Routes were not plowed last night and may be buried in snow.  In addition to the new snow, tall snow drifts formed from last night’s winds.

In addition to the City’s 2 1/2 snowplows, the City is using 3 to 4 backhoes to push snow off of Priority 1 routes.  Additional snowplows are on the way from Recology to help bolster the City’s snow removal efforts.

Snow Route Map 

We highly recommend people do not drive today as road conditions are unsafe and there are many vehicles in the ditch.  The City is trying to snowplow as best they can.  If the snow lets up soon, then Priority 2s will be tended to next.  

Medical assistance.
For immediate medical assistance, call 9-1-1 and the Fire Department will respond. Our local police and fire departments are operational and have increased staff to assist.  For non-emergencies, call your health care provider or hospital nurse line.
