SDOT Recommends Commuters Depart Early to Avoid Snowstorm
SEATTLE – With weather forecasts still calling for one to three inches of snow falling between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m., the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) recommends that commuters begin their trips home early this evening to avoid snow related problems.
SDOT has been aggressively pre-treating roadways, elevated structures and city owned pedestrian pathways in preparation for the storm. While pre-treatment work will aid in clearing roadways, the storm’s arrival during the evening rush hour will likely create disruptions.
Motorists can check on current traffic conditions and roadway images on the SDOT Traveler’s Map at: http://web5.seattle.gov/travelers/. While several mass transit agencies have been preparing for early departures, please check with your specific agency for availability.
