The UW has canceled classes for Wednesday.  Here are updates from the Seattle Department of Transportation:

SDOT continues working to prevent freezing on snow routes:

  • Currently the City has 17 trucks with salt spreaders and two flusher trucks deployed.
  • Snow routes are in good condition.
  • There was no significant re-freezing of cleared roadways during the past 24 hours.
  • There are no significant problems on the snow route network.
  • The Alaskan Way Viaduct and the West Seattle High Rise Bridge are bare and dry.
  • Focus is on reopening closed roads. The Seattle Police Department and SDOT are working to review roads currently closed and will update the list online.
  • The City will focus on efforts to prevent re-freezing, address trouble spots on Level 3 routes, and bring more roads off the closed list.
  • Because of the possibility of precipitation today leading to the formation of black ice tonight, some roads will remain closed.
  • 24 hour shifts will continue through Thursday, November 25.
  • Here are some other quick notes:

  • Seattle Schools are closed again today. No school and no activities.
  • No residential garbage, yard waste or recycling pick-ups Wednesday, November 24. If today is your collection day, you can put double the trash out next week.
