The City of Spokane has just announced they’re upgrading the snow declaration to a Stage 2 Snow Condition, which 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. The City is calling in private contract graders to help with the snow removal effort.

The City has about 50 plows, sanders, de-icers, and graders out working to improve driving conditions now. City crews currently are working in arterials and in residential hill routes 22, 23, and 24—essentially Indian Trail, Five Mile, and the Eagle Ridge area. They are using teams of plows and graders in the residential areas. Crews will leave berms at the end of driveways in the residential areas.
By 11 a.m. today, parked vehicles need to be moved off the arterial streets and STA fixed bus routes. By 6 p.m., vehicles should be parked on the even side of the street in residential hill routes. Parking also is restricted downtown between 2 and 6 a.m. during Stage 2 Snow Emergencies to assist with plowing there.
