Wednesday morning update by Acting Public Work Director Tom Mohr:
The Public Works maintenance crew worked all night last night and staff has been working non-stop on getting more resources to help dig out our City. Approximately 95% of the Priority 1 routes have been plowed. Many Priority 2 routes have been plowed as well and the crew will be focusing on remaining Priority 2 and 3 routes today.
Washington Department of Transportation was able to plow SR202 as well. City crews will be working to clean out some of the intersections that were plowed in by WSDOT crews.
Backhoes will be working their way up the Forster Woods Neighborhood today and Ribary Way to the west. The plows cannot push this much snow on the hills so we need to open a path down the center of the roads in order to get the plows in there. This will be slow going, but be assured crews are doing their best.
In addition to the City’s snow plows, additional snowplows provided by the National Guard and City of Issaquah will begin operations this morning.
We highly recommend you do not drive today. There are many vehicles in the ditch or parked on the side of the road and that makes plowing operations difficult.
