News Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Wednesday, October 15, 2008

Get in the know about ice and snow

To help residents prepare for winter driving, especially those who live in south Bellevue neighborhoods more frequently impacted by snow and ice, three open houses will be held to provide information and answer questions. Drivers ignored barricades, then had to abandon their cars on steep and winding Lakemont Boulevard in January 2007.

The City of Bellevue events, in partnership with AAA Washington, take place from 5 to 7 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Oct. 22 at Somerset Elementary School Library, 14100 Somerset Blvd. S.E.
  • Nov. 5 at Somerset Elementary School Library, 14100 Somerset Blvd. S.E.
  • Nov. 19 at Lewis Creek Park Visitor Center, 5808 Lakemont Blvd.

The open houses will offer written materials, a video on winter road conditions in Bellevue, free ice scrapers and city staff available to answer questions.

This year, Bellevue is again taking part in a state and national campaign called "Ice and Snow, Take it Slow." It's an effort to raise awareness about driving safely under poor road conditions.

For further information about winter driving, click on the orange and blue “Extreme Weather Response” button on the right side of the home page.

In addition to a snow/ice page with driving tips and a snow response priorities map, the Extreme Weather Response pages contain extensive information on topics such as power outages, storm debris and garbage collection, and important phone numbers.
