Please call the Public Works 24/7 dispatch line to share observations about specific locations: 425-257-8821.
Snow removal is prioritized by the Snow and Ice Control Plan which focuses efforts on major arterials and key secondary arterials that support transit operations and emergency services, as well as a number of steep residential streets that lack alternative access. Crews also respond to closure requests from the Everett Police Department, as well as problem spots reported to the 24-hour dispatch line. Crews only plow city roads within Everett city limits.
Snowplows cannot plow compact snow and ice to the asphalt until heat from the sun and salt breaks it up. Crews primarily use a sand/salt mixture or pure salt to treat roads, depending on conditions, focusing sanding in intersections, turns and on hills.
Are parks open to play in the snow?
While the golf courses and Kasch Park are not open for snow play, many City of Everett Parks are open dawn to dusk for snow play. Please use extreme caution on roads, parking lots, walkways and docks – as many are icy and slippery.
For your safety, and the safety of others, stay off of Silver Lake and other bodies of water – and please keep your pets off, too! Our Everett Fire and Everett Parks teams warn that while parts of lakes and waterways may appear to be frozen, the ice is not thick enough to be accessed and the water is very cold.
