Plow Info

Wondering when your street is going to be plowed? Here's a link to the County's plowing priority map. and here's Spokane City's version. Also, give the plow drivers some slack, they're working round the clock and doing the best they can.

While you're waiting to be freed from the oppression of snow on your neighborhood street, here's some words of wisdom from the County's website that we should all heed:

DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN TO DIG TUNNELS OR BUILD FORTS IN SNOW BERMS ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD OR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET! Plow operators cannot see children hidden in the snow! Children should be restricted to playing in yards, parks and playgrounds.
