Winter Storm Information & Roadway Impacts:

General Information

City crews perform ice prevention/remediation and snow removal on all public roadways. Priority is given to major arterials (See Snow Removal Map below) where there is the highest traffic volumes. 

Events over multiple days of accummulation and/or below freezing temperatures may require crews to continuously treat the major roadways. As resources allow, and once the arterials are passable, plowing and de-icing may be completed in residential areas, prioritizing neighborhood collector roads and hills. Roadways in residential areas may not be treated to a bare and wet level of service.

Residents can request a plow or de-icing for their street by submitting a Public Works Service Request (via Eyes on Federal Way).

As snow arrives, please help us keep the roads clear! We ask that motorists do not park or abandon their vehicles within any portion of the traffic lanes. Parked and abandoned vehicles impair snow and ice removal, impact response of emergency vehicles, and are subject to towing by the Police Department.

Snow fighting equipment has reduced visibility and we ask that if you see our trucks on the road you give them extra room to safely operate.
