The City of Spokane is gearing up for the snow that we’re expecting this weekend. According to a press release they just sent out, the City plows the streets according the following priority list:
1. Snow emergency routes: arterials that carry more than 15,000 vehicles each day.
2. Major arterials: arterials that carry less than 15,000 vehicles each day.
3. Secondary arterials and bus routes.
4. Residential hills.
5. Residential streets: Residential streets will be plowed if snow accumulations reach more than 4 inches, snow continues to fall, and additional snowfall is predicted in the forecast.
Citizens are asked to remove their vehicles from the streets when plows are expected. Updated plowing schedule information is available by calling the City’s snow removal hotline at 456-2666.
