[ARCHIVED] City of Snoqualmie Winter Storm Response Update

For immediate release: January 5, 2022

Snoqualmie, WA – With stabilized conditions on main roads, Public Works crews are working hard to clear our local streets. Thanks for your patience during this winter snow and ice event. In the event of additional snowfall, Public Works crews will need to refocus on primary and secondary roads. The following are ways you can help Public Works keep your streets plowed:

Best Practices for Cleared, Safe Streets 

  • Move cars out of the streets and into driveways, doubling them up if needed.
  • Drivers who abandon vehicles should pull off the road as safely as possible to avoid blocking vehicles and plows.
  • Inevitably cars and driveways will be blocked with snow from the plow - please understand this is at times unavoidable. 
  • Keep children out of streets before, during, and after snowstorms as plows prepare and maintain streets.
  • Walk on the left side of the road (facing traffic) where there are no sidewalks or the sidewalks are impassable.
  • Crews are dedicated to the safety of the community and will do the best they can around the clock to plow and sand our community. 
  • To learn more, see the City Snow and Ice Removal Plan along with the Snowplow Route.  

 Waste Management Garbage and Recycling Drop-Off Sites on January 5-6

Due to service interruptions, customers with Monday-Wednesday pickup can drop off garbage and recycling (no composting) at two locations from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The sites include: Centennial Fields, 39903 SE Park St and Community Park, 35016 SE Ridge Street. Bagged garbage only. Watch for Waste Management updates as weather conditions change. 

Keep Informed with Storm and Traffic Updates

The City of Snoqualmie does its best to keep the public informed. For information about weather and traffic impacting those in the Snoqualmie city limits, the City posts to Facebook and Twitter. Please also rely on reports from Washington State Department of Transportation Traffic Alerts, King County Department of Transportation Road Alerts, and news sources, especially for roads outside city limits. The following winter tips will help keep you safe at home or on the road. Register for emergency alerts. Gail Folkins, City of Snoqualmie
