Monday’s winter storm and its impact on the roads is affecting work at the Hanford Site.

Non-essential Hanford employees are being told to leave early “due to reduced visibility from blowing snow and related adverse weather conditions.” Here is the plan:

Day shift

200 East Area and all Areas South of the Wye Barricade, including employees working in Richland – 2:30 p.m.
200 West Area and 100 Areas – 3 p.m.

Swing and graveyard shifts

CANCELED Monday night for non-essential personnel

The Rattlesnake Barricade will be open until 6:30 p.m.

Essential employees needed to maintain minimum safe operations are on normal work schedules. Workers should use extra caution and plan for longer commute times.

Call the Hanford Hotline at 376-9999 for updates; contact your manager for specific policy questions.
