Snow and Ice Control
Priority Snow and Ice Response


Motorists should plan for winter road driving. Precautions can be taken by changing driving habits and by the use of appropriate snow tires or traction devices.

Black ice represents an invisible hazard. It is extremely hard to predict when and where black ice will form. Heavy frost on windshields is an indication that a similar frost coating may also exist on roadway surfaces. Sanding has limited benefits on black ice and can quickly be blown off the surface by traffic or wind.

Motorists are encouraged to take steps for safe driving during the winter season.
More information on winter driving can be found online at:

Island County Road Department works on a priority basis. Primary attention is given to clearing school bus/commuter routes. Secondary roads will be plowed/sanded as crews are available after the primary routes are clear.

Road Crews start their work well before the typical commute, at 4 a.m. and end their shifts at 8 p.m. when most commuters have returned from work. Extreme conditions can warrant 24-hour response.

The following is a list of roads that may not be plowed or sanded due to the steepness and danger involved.  Conditions may dictate that steep roads that can not be safely plowed or sanded will be closed.  

NOTE: List is not all-inclusive. Sanding/plowing may not be performed on other steep plat roads not included on the list, depending on the severity of weather conditions/time availability.
