Winter Weather Brochures Available Now

SDOT’s annual winter weather brochure is available now and has a large map of Seattle’s snow and ice routes, lists important telephone numbers and websites to use during winter storms, and offers preparedness tips.

We work closely with King County Metro Transit, the Seattle School District, local universities, and hospitals, to ensure our snow-fighting work maintains mobility for people and goods, and access to the region.

Winter Weather 2014 MapThe snow route map shows where we will focus our snow-fighting efforts. Those streets will be treated with de-icer and plowed when the storm hits. Now is a good time to plan routes to get to work, the grocery store, child care and medical appointments.

 

The brochures are free at Seattle Public Library branches, Neighborhood Service Centers, and available soon at Seattle Parks Community Centers.

 

They are available in 10 languages including: English, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Tagalog, Somali, Oromo, Tigrinya, and Amharic.

 

We’ve distributed brochures to Seattle public elementary schools students to share with their parents and families, in addition to local hospitals and community organizations.
