Here is the latest update just received from Everett Public Works and FYI there is salt in the mix
Our Public Works crews keep on working day and night to clear snow and ice from the roads throughout Everett, working 24 hours a day since Sunday afternoon! As of 8 a.m. this morning, they had covered 1,100 miles of Everett roads and laid more than 430 cubic yards of salted sand with their six plows. Last night, crews spent most of their time on arterials and secondary streets, with an emphasis on hills. Public Works staff have also been working behind the scenes monitoring traffic cameras and phone calls from Everett residents to help dispatch crews to locations where plows are most needed. Public Works staff will continue to work 24 hours a day until conditions improve. Many thanks to Public Works for working non-stop after this snow storm!

There is still compact snow and ice on many roads, and some roads remain icy. Snow plows cannot plow compact snow and ice to the asphalt until heat from the sun and salt breaks it up. This is why plowed streets may not look bare. Temperatures are expected to dip back down into the teens tonight – please use caution! If you have concerns about a specific location, please call our Public Works dispatch at 425-257-8832 to share your observations.
