SDOT's Snow Response Continues Throughout the City

SEATTLE – Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) Street Maintenance crews spent the night applying deicer and anti-icer to major arterials, elevated roadways and bridges, and known trouble spots along the snow route network. Despite an early morning snowfall, thus far, the roads south of the ship canal are bare and wet and are also in relatively good shape in the northwest sector of the city. Nevertheless, crews are patrolling those areas applying anti-icer where necessary. The morning snowfall primarily accumulated on streets, and especially hills, in the northeast section of the city - east of Aurora. SDOT trucks are applying anti-icer, deicer, and also plowing the snow where needed. SDOT's Street Maintenance crews will be working throughout the day to ensure safe driving conditions on the city's key roadways, particularly on routes used by buses and emergency response vehicles.

Motorists are advised to use added caution and be watchful for black ice. For up-to-date information on SDOT's response activities and roadway conditions, please visit: http://www.seattle.gov/transportation/winterweather.htm .
