City of North Bend snow plow crews have been working since midnight to clear city streets of snow. Public Works Maintenance Director, Mark Pray, reported that approximately 90% of Priority 1 roads have been plowed at this time and 70% of Priority 2 roads. Crews will be plowing Priority 3 roads in the next hour. He asks that residents please move your vehicles from road sides and cul-de-sacs to allow plows to clear the roads.

City’s Action Plan for snow removal: 

1.  Continue plowing/clearing snow for Priority 1 and 2 routes.

2.  Focus plowing efforts on Priority 3 routes once Priority 1 and 2 routes are clear.

3.  Clean catch basins, monitor ditches and conveyance channels.

4.  Survey parks and public spaces that may have been impacted by snow or fallen branches/trees.

5.  Provide assistance to schools, businesses, and residents as needed. 

The weather forecast calls for additional snow in our area over the next few days. Dropping temperatures will make for icy road conditions for morning travelers. The City recommends residents only go out if necessary and to use extreme caution if you must be on the road.

Remember these Tips for Driving in the Snow:

  • Keep at least half a tank of gas in your vehicle at all times in case you get stuck
  • Drive slowly and adjust speed to account for lower traction
  • Accelerate slowly to gain traction and avoid skids.
  • Increase following distance in case you need to stop
  • Don’t stop when going uphill. Get some inertia on a flat roadway to be able to make it up the hill
