As of 8 a.m. this morning, Snohomish County Public Works crews have plowed 23,784 miles, sanded 11,408 miles, and have used more than 600 tons of sand and salt since Christmas morning.

“Our crews have been working very hard to make sure that the primary routes are as clear as possible so that emergency responders can get through when they are needed,” Snohomish County Public Works Director Kelly Snyder said. “Luckily we should have a break in the snow fall today and we will begin clearing secondary and tertiary routes.”

Drivers are asked to check their travel routes and options before heading out today or during a snow and ice event.
