With the winter months and colder weather comes the potential for icy roads. Motorists should exercise caution while driving in winter weather.

Vehicles should be in good working order and be stocked with an emergency kit that includes items like blankets, warm clothes and non-perishable foods.

Our response

Pierce County's major roads connect residential areas to service centers and state highways.

These major roads are our priority during a snow and ice event, along with Pierce Transit and school bus snow routes. If you can get out of your neighborhood and reach a key arterial, you will likely find a drivable road.

The level of service these major roads receive during winter weather is determined by several factors, including weather conditions, the classification of the roadway, and available resources. 

When a severe winter storm is forecast, our plan provides that crews apply anti-icing products to key arterials and lifelines routes assuming all resources are available.

If heavy snowfall affects roads countywide, plow trucks with de-icing materials are deployed 24 hours a day when all resources are available until conditions improve.
