After-school activities canceled, commuters urged to leave early to avoid expected snowstorm

January 11th, 2011 · Comments

Seattle Department of Transportation is recommending that commuters leave work early to avoid the one to three inches of snow that is forecasted to fall between 4-8 p.m. today. And Seattle Public Schools has canceled all after-school activities.

SDOT has been aggressively pre-treating roadways, elevated structures and city owned pedestrian pathways in preparation for the storm. While pre-treatment work will aid in clearing roadways, the storm’s arrival during the evening rush hour will likely create disruptions.

Motorists can check on current traffic conditions and roadway images on the SDOT Traveler’s Map at: http://web5.seattle.gov/travelers/. While several mass transit agencies have been preparing for early departures, please check with your specific agency for availability.
