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.

View our Emergency Snow & Ice Plan and learn more about snow and ice removal.
