Downed Trees Within City of Spokane Mapped

I've been talking to a lot of people who say they're fine after last night's wind storm, but they're trying to find ways out of their neighborhoods because so many roads are blocked by downed trees. While City of Spokane tree crews have been responding to these downed trees, the GIS department has been mapping them so you can figure out what is the best route to get where you're going safely. Updates to the map are being posted as crews get trees cleaned up too.

To report a downed tree call 625.7733. Please use extreme caution around downed power lines and report them to Avista at 800.227.9187.

City crews are responding to downed tree calls in order of priority. Arterial locations are the first concern, residential streets second and finally side streets.
