City & Valley Snow Removal Updates

City of Spokane snow removal crews made good progress overnight under the Stage 2 Snow Event declared yesterday. They have completed the residential hill routes and are moving into other residential areas this morning. They will work 24 hours a day until they complete a full-City plow that includes all residential areas.
The City has about 68 pieces of snow removal equipment out, including private contractors. Crews currently are working in Routes 1, 2, 3, and 4 on the South Side and in 10, 11, 12, and 13 on the North Side. To see the residential routes, go to the City’s residential plow map. The next routes scheduled are 5 and 6 to the south and 9 and 7 to the north.

Cul-de-sacs are plowed by separate teams that include either backhoes or loaders; cul-de-sacs may not be plowed at the same time as the rest of a street. Cul-de-sac teams are working on both the north and south sides today.

Citizens should be parked on the even side of the street in all residential areas by now.

Spokane Valley crews continued plowing and clearing slush from primary and secondary arterials and hillside areas last night and into this morning. They are coordinating with the Spokane Valley police department to address problem areas.
