City initiates full-City plow

City initiates full-City plow

SPOKANE, Wash. - The City of Spokane is initiating a full-City plow, which means crew will work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, until all streets in the city are plowed.

Under the City's new snow response plan, a full-city plow should take about three days to complete, unless there is additional snowfall.

Additional crews have been called in for a night shift, and more will be called in in the morning.

City crews are currently focusing on plowing arterials and will then move to residential hill routes, which are marked on the map here. They will then plow other residential areas. To check the progress of the plows, you can view the City's plow map.

To assist the plows, you are asked to park vehicles on the odd side of the street in residential areas. 

The City is working with new equipment to reduce driveway berms. Crews will also work to plow snow away from the curb. The City asks that citizens clear a 36-inch pedestrian path on sidewalks with a goal of removing snow by 9 a.m. after the end of the snowfall.
