Winter Weather Update, February 5

Release Date: February 05, 2019

WINTER WEATHER UPDATE, 10:00 P.M.:

Crews are still working on the neighborhood hills and arterials, but may not be able to get to all the neighborhoods before the next storm hits - particularly if the priority 1 and 2 routes need attention.

We’re looking at another night of temperatures in the teens, which means we can expect icy conditions overnight and into the Wednesday morning commute.

The City has a web page with information about Winter Storm Readiness: https://www.sammamish.us/government/departments/emergency-management/winter-storm-readiness/

If you’re worried about driving in snow and/or ice, there are safety videos to help: http://www.drc-group.com/project/jitt-winterdriving.html

The #1 tip: S-L-O-W  D-O-W-N and give yourself extra time – and distance – to stop.

 

Late Starts and Closures

Schools in both the Issaquah and Lake Washington School Districts will start one-hour late on Wednesday, February 6.

Republic Services is planning to run all residential trash routes on a delayed start time tomorrow, Feb 6. In the interest of safety for their drivers and customers, there will likely be some neighborhoods that they are unable to service due to poor conditions. Those neighborhoods missed will be able to set out doubles at no charge on their next collection day. Republic Services will keep us posted on those areas as they become known, or if conditions change and their schedule changes.

City Parks are still closed; we’ll update this message when the parks will be open to the public again.

Winter Weather Update, 2:00 p.m.:

Our crews are working on priority routes 3 and 4 and trying to fit in neighborhood streets as they're able. If the roads are icy, however, they cannot plow.

We are doing everything we can, but we may not be able to get to all the neighborhoods before the next storm hits - particularly if the priority 1 and 2 routes need attention.

Crews are out working on neighborhood hills now.

Closures

All City Parks will remain closed today. Why? Because when the City has snow and ice events, the parks maintenance staff's priorities shift to plowing and de-icing streets and supporting the Streets/Stormwater divisions.

Resident and driver safety is the priority right now.

Closures

All Issaquah and Lake Washington District Schools are closed today.

City Parks will remain closed until further notice.

There will be no garbage pick up today(Tuesday). Doubles will be collected next Tuesday at no additional charge.

Because we are focusing on priority areas 1 and 2 for now, we’ve not been able to get to neighborhood streets and there’s no ETA at this point.
 
Additionally, with temperatures dropping our crews are reporting that roads are freezing over – even with the deicer.
 
While no roads are officially closed at this point, be prepared for icy conditions; if it's possible, please avoid driving.
