Public Works maintenance crews warned of potential black ice and roads that will be hazardous the evening of Tuesday, Feb. 5, into Wednesday morning, Feb. 6. Low temperatures also mean de-icer will not be as effective.
According to a message posted by City of Renton, roads previously treated by public works saw melted snow making roadways wet Tuesday.
With temperatures expected to drop to the mid-teens to low-20s tonight, wet roads will become highly likely for black ice.
The department has had maintenance crews on the roads since 7 p.m. Sunday night, continuing to plow roads until weather conditions change.
Public Works maintenance crews warn that shaded areas were the most difficult to remove compact snow and ice from and are especially slippery.
Those crews are continuing work through the night. They warn drivers use extreme caution if they must be out on the roads.
