  Winter Weather Driving

Winter weather can lead to poor driving conditions, including ice and snow on our roadways.  The City of Centralia makes every effort to keep its roads passable during these conditions with a fleet of sanding and snow removal equipment.

The Cityís Street Department has 3 sanders and 5 snow plows mounted on dump trucks and pickups and a motor grader which is converted to plow snow.

Centralia has devised a priority plan for the removal of ice and snow from its 82 miles of roads.  Priority is given to viaducts, bridges, roadways leading to the hospital, major hillside roads, and signaled intersections.  Sanding and snow plowing in other parts of the City will be conducted as needed depending upon the availability of manpower and equipment.  Some streets may be restricted or closed to traffic depending on conditions.

What can you do to help?  Donít drive if you donít have to.  If you have to go out please slow down!  Give the snow plows and sanders plenty of room to operate.  Sanders spread sanding gravel and, if you travel too close, your car will get pelted with rock.  Be aware that snow plows make wide turns so give them room and be sure the operators can see you.

The Cityís Street Department will make every effort to keep the roads passable and, with patience, the citizens of Centralia will be able to travel safely throughout the City.

If you have any questions, please contact the Public Works Department at 330-7512.
