City Of Burien Releases Anti-Icer Route Map; Is Your Street On It?
The City of Burien this week released a map that shows the routes its anti-icing equipment will take when the roads get icy or snowy.
This map may possibly find use as early as this weekend if the recent predictions of a cold snap hold up (we’ll be following the weather closely so stay tuned…).
Some interesting observations:
- It appears the city isn’t planning on de-icing First Ave South from SW 160th south, as that is apparently out of city limits (does First Ave South belong to Normandy Park in this area?)
- SW 152nd from Maplewild SW east to Ambaum Blvd. SW, a fairly-trafficked street that passes St. Francis School, is apparently not on the route either.
- Burien’s trucks will apparently shut off its equipment as it cruises along Sylvester Ave when it runs through the stretch that belongs to Normandy Park (see closeup of map below; I guess the NP de-icers will take over that area?)
