Starting at around noon today, the City of Spokane is planning to use an industrial snow blower to remove some of the center berms downtown that were created by plows overnight. The snow will then be hauled away in dump trucks. Work begins on Spokane Falls Boulevard and could slow traffic but at least one travel lane will be maintained wherever the snow blower is being used.
Meanwhile, the City has essentially completed plowing the primary and secondary arterials and is concentrating on residential areas, where 17 grader-truck plow teams are deployed. On the North Side, crews are working in routes 8, 9, and 13, with route 7 scheduled next, and on the South Hill, they are working in routes 2 and 3 with 1 scheduled next.

Plowing in Browne’s Addition has been scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 28 and March 1. North-south streets will be plowed on Monday and east-west streets on Tuesday. Vehicles must be moved from those north-south streets on Monday and the east-west streets on Tuesday or they will be towed.
