Issaquah School District schools open one hour later Wednesday due to the slushy mess on local roadways.
The schools operate on a regular Wednesday schedule otherwise.
City road crews toiled throughout the night to clear roads as snowfall transitioned to rainfall.
Expect rain and temperatures in the 40s Wednesday and Wednesday night.
Allied Waste and Waste Management said garbage collection might be late for some customers in Issaquah and nearby Wednesday due to road conditions.
Allied Waste provides trash service in the South Cove and Greenwood Point neighborhoods; Waste Management handles garbage pick-up in the rest of the city.
Allied Waste also serves Klahanie and Mirrormont outside of Issaquah city limits in unincorporated King County.
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.
