News Release
Public Works road crews responding to dusting of snow across Clark County - 02/05/19

Vancouver, Wash. – Public Works crews are out early this morning after a light layer of overnight snow blanketed Clark County.

Road crews are spraying deicer and applying gravel where needed in unincorporated Clark County. Across most of the county, including urban areas near the city of Vancouver, there isn’t enough snow on roads to plow. Accumulations are slightly heavier in some locations, such as north Clark County at higher elevations.

Public Works is focused on major thoroughfares in unincorporated Clark County. A map showing primary and secondary routes for winter road response is available on the county’s website, www.clark.wa.gov/public-works/winter-snow-and-ice.

Drivers still should use caution during today’s commute since there could be icy spots. Slow down, allow extra time to reach your destination and leave plenty of room between vehicles.

Clark County has almost 100 traffic cameras at signalized intersections, primarily in urban areas outside the city of Vancouver. The cameras, which can be accessed at www.clark.wa.gov/public-works/traffic-cameras, provide a handy way for residents to check out current conditions before leaving home.

Specific problems in areas outside city limits can be reported to Public Works by calling 360.397.2446.
