Street conditions as of 4 p.m., Feb. 4

Most arterials have been covered by sanders and/or plows at least once. Crews have started on several secondary streets, but are also still addressing arterials where additional work is needed. A closure was requested by EPD on Seaway earlier in the day, but this area has been sanded, and crews are in the process of reopening the road.

Street conditions have been addressed with varying degrees of attention ranging from multiple passes to only partial coverage, depending on need. Depending on when an individual street was plowed/sanded, the benefit to the travel surface will also vary.

See a preliminary list of streets (indicated by highlight) that have been plowed as of 4 pm., Feb. 4.

What’s happening tonight

Crews will continue plowing arterials until freezing occurs, which is expected tonight. Once snow freezes, it cannot be plowed, and crews will shift to sanding and salting. Crews will also be responding to Dispatch requests 24-hours a day. Report concerns at 425-257-8821.

What to expect tomorrow morning

Crews will focus on getting arterials  sanded and salted by morning and will then move into side streets and neighborhoods and address conditions appropriately by plowing or salting/sanding.

Utility billing

Everett utilities office will be open for business, Tues., Feb. 5 during normal business hours. The utility did not conduct collection activity today and will not collect tomorrow, meaning no water shutoff notices were hung on doors, and services were not shut off for non-payment. Customers are encouraged to call Utility Services to work out payment accommodations at 425-257-8999.
