Snow and Ice Routes
During winter snow and ice storms and other severe weather conditions that impact our local roads, safety is the City of Marysville's top priority.

The Street Department maintains 196 miles of streets within the city. Street crews provide 24-hour coverage, conducting periodic sanding and snow/ice removal using a fleet of winter-ready vehicles that mitigate roadway condition during severe weather events.

Snow and Ice Removal Plan
The City's Snow and Ice Removal Plan designates snow and ice routes for sanding and plowing using a zoned system, which are illustrated on the Snow and Ice Routes Map. Within each zone, a system of priority has been established taking into consideration topography, traffic volumes and special usage by police and firefighters.

During events where snow and ice conditions are widespread, Street personnel concentrate their removal efforts based on the following:

  • Arterials leading in and out of the City
  • Arterials located on hills within City boundaries
  • Fire and police access
  • All other arterials within City boundaries.

For services such as garbage pickup, City officials judge whether certain areas are accessible. If conditions are deemed impassable, crews due to safety concerns will not enter those streets.
