Snow and Ice Response
The City of Redmond Public Works Department, Streets Division, maintains streets within the City. As part of that program, the division conducts snow and ice response to mitigate the conditions during a snow and ice event. View Snow and Ice Response Routes map in PDF format.

While the program is designed to provide a safe roadway system, it will not eliminate the impacts or effects of a snow and ice event.

Priorities

The City has First and Second Priority routes for snow and ice response which are monitored by City staff on a regular basis in an effort to maintain traffic flow as near to normal as possible. In events where snow and ice conditions are wide spread, street personnel will prioritize based on the following:
  • Hospitals and schools
  • Arterials leading in and out of Redmond
  • Arterials located on hills within Redmond
  • All other arterials within Redmond
  • During events where ice conditions are appearing in random areas of the City, personnel will respond to situations that are reported by the City of Redmond Police Department or other sources.

    Please Note: The City does not plow residential neighborhoods until the main arterials are clear and passable.

Routing

During snow and ice events, City personnel and equipment are assigned to four separate geographic areas:
  • North Redmond
  • East Redmond
  • West Redmond (including central and downtown areas)
  • South Redmond

The anti-icing unit is used citywide for breaking up compact snow on hills and at signalized intersections.

Recommendations
The program is designed to provide a safe roadway system, however it will not eliminate the impacts or effects of a snow and ice event. So please:

If at all possible, stay at home during a major snow event.
If you must drive and you live in a neighborhood that is extremely difficult to enter or exit because of snow or ice, we encourage residents to consider other legal interim parking locations for accessing plowed roadways.
