Winter Storm Information & Roadway Impacts:

Feburary 15, 8:00 AM 

All of the main roads are bare and wet. Many side streets were plowed. Weather has transitioned to above freezing and rain. Mother nature will finish the remaining clearing. Crews will respond if there is extensive flooding from the rain and snow melt.

Waste Management reports that they will run the routes as scheduled.


February 14, 6:00 PM - Road Open - Transition to Rain

All roads are open. Weather is transitioning to rain. Crews will be focusing on clearing slush and snow from the roadway gutters so roads can drain. 


February 14, 2021 10:45 AM - TEMPORARY ROAD CLOSURE

2800 Block of SW Dash Point Road (just east of the Sewer Treatment Plant) is temporarily closed due to downed tree and power line. Puget Sound Energy (PSE) is on site bypassing power in order to get one lane open (ETA 11:30 AM - one lane alternating). Repair Crews are in route. Estimated time to get road fully open is by 3:00 PM).


February 13, 2021 5:00 PM

Crews have been out continuously since yesterday and have been able to plow many arterials and collector roadways today. As the temperature starts to drop this evening we are shifting focus to plowing (as needed) and applying de-icer to primary roadways and hot spots as ice forms on wet roadways. Forecast shows we are to expect more snow and freezing temperatures tonight.

City crews are working to keep the roads clear. If you have to be out driving, here are some tips for driving in snowy conditions:

  • Slow Down
  • Increase your following distance
  • Ensure your headlights are on
  • Don’t slam on your brakes

February 13, 2021 1:00 AM

Snow continues to fall and accumulate on the roads. Roads are covered with compact snow. Falling temperatures making for slick/icy conditions. Crews focusing on plowing and placing salt on primary routes. Crews will apply salt to secondary routes once primary routes are passable.

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

February 12, 2021:

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.

Public Works has spent the last several days out applying brine to our major roads in preparation of inclement weather anticipated the end of this week. We are continuing to monitor the storms and are prepared to treat the roads as needed during and after the event. 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.
