SDOT Clears Inbound Routes Across Seattle
Drivers advised to go slow
SEATTLE — Building on the success of yesterday's snow and ice removal, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is plowing, de-icing and sanding inbound routes around the city. The department advises that motorists drive slowly as they move around the city for work and holiday shopping. Arterials are plowed with passable road conditions.

SDOT currently has 18 trucks plowing, sanding and de-icing city streets. Three of those trucks are devoted solely to the West Seattle Bridge and the Alaskan Way Viaduct.

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.
