City of Bremerton Continues Travel Warning through Friday, December 23

Mayor Greg Wheeler has continued a travel warning for the City of Bremerton due to forecasts of extreme cold weather expected through early Friday. 

The National Weather Service is predicting temperatures to stay near or below freezing through the rest of the week, creating icy conditions and potentially hazardous travel. Based on weather reports, residents are encouraged to exercise caution and limit travel unless absolutely necessary due to the extreme drop in temperatures and potential for ice on roadways. 

“Weather reports continue to show a blast of cold air hitting our region, creating possible road conditions that may make travel hazardous. We urge the public to monitor weather forecasts, stay off the roads or limit travel to only essential trips if possible,” said Mayor Wheeler. “I also encourage residents to check on their neighbors and those that need extra help during this time if they are able to do so safely.” 

In response to weather conditions, the City of Bremerton implemented its inclement weather response procedures, which includes activation of 24-hour operations to address snow and ice on City streets. The first priority for response is clearing primary and secondary snow routes as defined in the City’s inclement weather response plan to ensure access is maintained for emergency response vehicles and essential travel. Lower use roads including residential streets are then addressed as time and conditions permit. Since Monday, Dec. 19, the City of Bremerton has implemented the following as part of its inclement weather response: 

Monday, Dec. 19 at 4 a.m. - Crews were called in to apply salt brine on primary and secondary roads in preparation for freezing weather; 24-hour operations were initiated. 

Tuesday, Dec. 20 – The City continued 24-hr operations with an emphasis on plowing snow and slush to remove ahead of the deep freeze. Crews also began applying sand/salt mix.

Wednesday, Dec. 21 – The City continued 24-hr operations. The City has been constantly monitoring conditions on its primary and secondary snow routes and crews have been able to shift focus to other priorities, including hilly areas and residential streets. 

With additional cold weather forecasted, City of Bremerton walkup counter services will be closed on Thursday, December 22. To find department phone and email contacts, please visit the City of Bremerton website for department information: https://bit.ly/3v7vf19

The City of Bremerton will continue to monitor conditions over the next few days.
