Spokane County reminds motorists to slow down, drive safe amid new snowfall

Spokane County is reminding citizens to slow down and stay vigilant as the area experiences dropping temperatures and snowfall.

In a statement, Spokane County said that snow crews are slated to sand and de-ice emergency routes and primary arterials, and will work until midnight. Maintenance operations will start back up tomorrow at 4:00 a.m.

The County adds that although rain is forecasted, the wet snow that is falling currently may create ice that make roads slick.
