Here is the latest from the City of Everett:

Everett Public Works crews are continuing 24-hour operations as they prepare for more snow forecast for the next couple of days. Crews have spent the weekend plowing and laying salted sand; last night and today the roads have been too wet to put down deicer. Public Works has stockpiled salt and sand to last the coming week, and has more on order.

Water crews responded to a few small water main breaks this weekend that did not involve any property damage. Sewer and drainage crews have also assisted streets crews by clearing drains for snow melt runoff.

“As temperatures rise and snow starts to melt, the water has to go somewhere,” said Grant Moen, maintenance superintendent. “Please clear away snow from on top of and around any storm drains on your street. This will speed up drainage from snow melt and help keep water from traveling where it’s not wanted.”

Current road conditions

While crews have removed a lot of snow this weekend, there are still places with compact snow and ice that can make roads hazardous, and black ice is possible with the low temperatures that the area has been experiencing. Drivers should use caution and stay off the roads as much as possible.

As of 8 a.m. Sunday, crews had plowed 5,145 miles of streets and laid 2,302 cubic yards of salt and sand. Crews follow Everett’s Snow and Ice Control Plan, which prioritizes major arterials and secondary streets, but also clear roads in residential neighborhoods when possible, particularly areas with significant hills. Crews’ ability to clear neighborhood streets is dependent on staffing and the condition of priority routes.

Community members are encouraged to call the 24/7 dispatch line to report observations about specific locations: 425-257-8821. Additional dispatch staffing is available this weekend to take reports.

Snow and cold temperatures may affect City programs and facilities; updates will be posted on the City’s Facebook page and at www.everettwa.gov/inclementweather. Community members should call ahead if unsure whether a facility is operating on its normal schedule. For Parks programs and facilities, call 425-257-8399.
