Local Conditions

Stay home when conditions are too dangerous to travel safely. If you must travel check road conditions before you head out at TripCheck.com.

Road Operations

Snow Plow at WorkGresham crews anti-ice, de-ice, plow or sand streets – or a combination of techniques – depending on conditions. The City’s winter response
route consists of three categories:

  • Priority 1 (hospital and emergency routes, arterial streets, and bridges)
  • Priority 2 (through and collector streets and steep grades)
  • Priority 3 (residential streets, cul-de-sacs, and dead ends).

If inclement weather persists, crews may be required to focus on the Priority 1 and Priority 2 streets until weather improves. Use the City’s interactive plow map to see if your street is a primary, secondary or neighborhood street.
