Snow & Ice Plan

Snow & Ice Plan

snow covering road in cityWith the expected inclement weather starting early evening on Thursday, the City has been busy preparing for ice and possible snow. The City’s winter response route consists of two categories for residential streets:

Priority 1 –  Hills, steep grades, and intersections;

Priority 2 –  Residential streets and the City Park.

Multnomah County Transportation maintains the arterial streets:  Glisan, 223rd, Halsey, 238th, Arata, Wood Village Blvd, and Sandy Blvd. See current updates on the county's Snow and Ice Plan page.

Stay safe over the holidays by avoiding icy and snow-covered roads. If you have to be out on the road, drive cautiously and use Trip Check to monitor road conditions before you leave the house. Help road crews by moving cars off residential streets if possible to make snow removal easier and quicker.

Winter Storm Prep

As temperatures are expected to be well below freezing, follow these tips to stay warm and keep pipes from freezing:

  • If using a space heater, plug it directly into a wall outlet and keep it at least 3-feet from flammable objects
  • Open cabinet doors and allow faucets to drip, especially if plumbing is on exterior walls
  • If traveling, pack an emergency car kit in the case of getting lost or stranded
  • If you are in need of shelter, the county has opened warming centers and severe weather shelters
