SPOKANE, Wash. – Due to the impending winter weather, the Washington State Department of Transportation announced that snowplows will be returning to their winter schedules this weekend.

This results in 24/7 snowplow coverage until roads are clear in the Eastern portion of the state.

WSDOT asks for drivers to be on alert as the plows operate at 35 mph or less.
