SDOT Responds to Snow Accumulating in Seattle

SEATTLE – With snow now accumulating on city streets, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is transitioning to plowing roadways while continuing to spread salt. The department is ready to work through the night to keep major roads open, buses moving and critical emergency services accessible.

Motorists are advised to use caution when driving in snow and ice, especially on Seattle’s many hills and bridges. For up-to-date information on the City’s response and roadway conditions, please visit: http://Seattle.gov/transportation/. Motorists can also check on current traffic conditions and roadway images on SDOT’s Traveler’s Map at: http://web5.seattle.gov/travelers/.
