Crews Plowing and Sanding Priority One and Two Routes
Some Progress in Hilly Residential Areas
County crews will continue working 24/7 in 12-hour shifts to plow and sand the largest county road system in the State of Washington (5,100+ lane miles). Today, the focus is on finishing and cleaning up the county’s Priority One and continuing to work through the Priority Two Routes (Priority One focuses on emergency routes and major arterials, while Priority Two adds secondary roads.) The crews in all districts will be moving into the residential area for a Full-County Plow once the Priority One and Two routes are complete.
Today, we are seeing different conditions across the County. Snow volumes are highest in the north County while there was some drifting snow in the south. Currently, we have several private contractors augmenting our crews efforts and they are working in hillside residential routes.
Keep in mind that every time we receive a significant snowfall, our crews have to refocus on the Priority One and Two Routes. The public’s understanding and patience is appreciated.
