Fremont, Seattle Preps For Snowfall

By master · December 28th, 2010 · No Comments

As you’ve heard, it’s likely going to snow Wednesday. Now reports say that snowfall will begin Tuesday night. The good news is that the city isn’t expecting it to be quite as bad as last month’s snowpocalypse. Still, they’re going to take precautions.

After 10 p.m. tonight SDOT crews will proactively apply salt brine in roadway areas where frost or black ice is prone to develop, especially on bridges and other elevated structures around the city.

Starting at 4 a.m. tomorrow morning (Wednesday), SDOT spreader trucks will be prepositioned throughout the city, ready to spread rock salt on major arterial streets (primary snow routes, Levels 1 and 2) for the morning commute if conditions warrant.

Chances are, you won’t be breaking out the sled to race own a snowed-over Fremont Ave. Wednesday morning. Read more on SDOT’s winter weather response plan and to view a map of snow routes here.

Also remember that Metro buses are already running on reduced schedules this week so be prepared if you’re traveling around the city either way.
