City road crews remain on standby as snow continues to fall in Issaquah.

Roads remain open in the city, but Public Works Operations crews plan to clear priority routes if the need arises. Motorists can check up-to-the-minute road conditions on real-time traffic cameras installed throughout Issaquah.

King County Road Services Division planners track road conditions for roads in rural and unincorporated areas during inclement conditions.

If drivers must abandon vehicles along Issaquah streets, park clear of travel lanes to allow snow equipment to pass.

The city tows vehicles left abandoned in travel lanes. Call the Issaquah Police Department nonemergency line, 837-3200, to locate vehicles after a snowstorm.

National Weather Service meteorologists expect the snow to turn to rain after 10 p.m. Tuesday, as the temperature and snow level rise.

Road Services Division planners said standing water on road surfaces could pose a problem as snow melts and rain soaks the region.
