The City of Spokane is continuing work under a Stage 2 Snow Emergency declared yesterday. That means City crews will work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until they complete a full-City plow that includes all residential areas.
Currently, the City has 57 pieces of snow removal equipment out, including 19 teams of plows and graders working in the neighborhoods. Private contractors were added to the effort yesterday. Teams are working in residential snow plow routes 5, 20, and 24 on the South Side and routes 8 and 23 on the North Side. They’ll move to route 9 next. Crews have completed work in residential hill routes 21, 22, and 23.
By now, all cars should be parked on the even side of the street in the residential areas.
Crews also are working on secondary arterials and STA fixed bus routes. No cars can be parked on arterials or STA routes during a snow emergency. Additionally, parking is restricted in downtown between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. to facilitate plowing there.
