SDOT Crews are Prepared for Snow

SEATTLE-Between a half and one inch of Snow is forecast this morning for the Seattle area. By midmorning any snow is expected to change to rain.

During the night the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) crews applied deicer to the high level West Seattle Bridge, the Alaskan Way Viaduct, and the Aurora Bridge, ready for the morning commute. Only a few flakes of snow are falling as two trucks stand “at the ready” on the West Seattle Bridge, and others are assigned to locations around the city.

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.
