King County Road crews finally have the upper hand on snow and ice that have gripped the county in recent days. County Road Service Division reports good driving conditions on most main roadways in lower elevation areas. There are still some roads in North Bend and upper Snoqualmie Valley that have been slower to recover. Crews will continue snow and ice removal in these areas.
Some east King County roads remain closed due to downed trees, power lines and/or debris. Gusty winds complicated clean-up efforts even further by preventing crews from working overnight in heavily wooded areas.
Crews continue the huge task of cleaning up from recent storms. Top priority is getting the trees, debris and power lines off roadways that are closed. Work will then shift to collecting piles of trees and branches littered along road sides. The clean up effort may take several weeks.
