Snow may fall at the top of hills in Seattle

SEATTLE-SDOT crews have equipment ready to roll in case the forecast for a possible bit of slushy snow on Seattle hilltops becomes a reality tonight. Trucks are fitted with sanders, and crews are prepared. Street Maintenance staff will continue to monitor the weather forecast this evening and night, and through the week since snow is also a possibility for the weekend.

SDOT Manager Roxanne Thomas advises, “Be sure your car is ready for the season with good, winter-weather tires. Taking public transit is preferred, however, and this means knowing the snow plan for your bus route. Also, dress for the possibility of a surprise winter storm beginning after you leave your house, because if cars are stranded, or buses are delayed, you may need to spend some time out in the elements.”

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $8 billion transportation infrastructure. To further Mayor Nickels’ goal to get Seattle moving, the department manages short- and long-term investments in streets, bridges, pavement and trees, that better connect the city with the region.
