Safety Tips

Be prepared! Read through our tips on how to be prepared before a storm comes.

Current Road Conditions

Be sure to check our traffic cameras and snow plow map before leaving your home. 

Where’s the Plow?

  • The City’s Snow Route Status Map tracks the progress of snow plowing and/or sanding operations in Issaquah during an active event.
  • The map initially shows only city streets in gray scale. As streets are plowed, color is added to show the routes completed, the latest completed time (in 24 hour format) and the total number of times the route was plowed and/or sanded.
  • Colors differ by route area and all routes within an area are the same color.
  • The plowing status will only display during an active event.
  • Severe weather conditions can force crews to focus their efforts on maintaining a limited number of priority routes.

Bus Service

Towed Vehicles

  • Drivers who get stuck should not abandon their vehicles in an area that would block traffic, as those vehicles will be towed.
  • If, after a storm, your vehicle isn’t where you left it, call the Issaquah Police Department’s non-emergency line at 425-837-3200.


The Issaquah School District will keep parents and students updated on any delays, late starts or closures related to weather.


If you, or someone you know, is in need of sheltering options during an event, our regional winter shelters list provides information on organizations who can assist. 


Please keep in mind that it’s the responsibility of the abutting property owner to keep sidewalks clear of snow and ice.

Garbage, Recycling & Yard Waste Pick-up

Inclement weather can impact Recology’s ability to service your area. If your bins are not picked up on your service day, leave bins out to be picked up on the following day. Recology will make efforts to catch up on service routes as the weather and road conditions allow. See commonly asked questions on Recology's website.
