Street Sanding Priorities

City Prepares for Winter Weather: Street Sanding Priorities Identified
For city crews, winter weather often translates into spending long hours in sanding trucks creeping along treacherous roadways. You might be surprised to learn that a lot of preparation and planning goes into this effort.

Every fall city crews gear up for icy, snowy weather. To kick off this effort, city staff attends an annual “Sanding Summit” where various agencies meet to review the previous year’s activities, confirm routes, share plans and update information. With a game plan in place, the next step is to order hundreds of yards of sand, inspect equipment, load sanders onto trucks, equip city vehicles with chains, and review safety procedures and winter driving techniques. Then we’re ready!

Since Highway 99 and Hall Boulevard are state roads, they are maintained by the Oregon Department of Transportation. Other streets are maintained by the city. During a winter storm, roadway maintenance is prioritized. In general, streets at higher elevations or with steep grades are sanded first, followed by major city thoroughfares.
