City of Sequim preps for weekend snow

With a National Weather Service report indicating the possibility of snow this weekend, City of Sequim Public Works crew members will be on call throughout the week and weekend to clear streets if necessary, city officials said Tuesday, Dec. 21.

During snow storms, city crew concentrates on clearing the main arterials first— Washington Street, Sequim Avenue, 5th Avenue, 3rd Avenue, overpasses (and school routes, when schools are in session) are top priorities.

City crews spread magnesium chloride, a liquid de-icing agent, on main arterials and overpasses when temperatures drop below freezing.

There are 54 miles of city-owned roads and alleyways in the City of Sequim, in addition to parking lots and sidewalks, as well as 19 miles of private streets and roadways within the city limits that the city does not clear. City officials ask community members to help by clearing snow from the sidewalks that adjoin homes and businesses.
