During snow and ice events, the Public Works Department focuses resources on snow removal operations, de-icing, traction improvements, and selected road closures to mitigate hazardous traveling conditions.
During these events, personnel and resources are focused on our Priority 1, 2, and 3 routes (see maps above). They are also working alongside the Kirkland Police and Kirkland Fire Departments to ensure proper emergency response. If you have an emergency, please call 911.
Crews may begin working on non-priority roads when maintenance on the priority routes is completed.
Plowing, de-icing, and sanding is not done upon request since resources are directed primarily at the priority routes and arterials.
Please note that as a resident or property/business owner in Kirkland, you are responsible for keeping sidewalks adjacent to your property clear of any debris or obstructions including snow and ice.
