The City of Spokane has a new way to reach you to warn you about winter weather conditions and driving in them. Mayor David Condon held a press conference yesterday to officially kick off the 2013/14 snow season and said the city will use new electronic variable message signs added to some of
the City’s main arterials to communicate with drivers about conditions.

Snow season staffing begins this week, means there will be crews scheduled overnight to plow and de-ice to keep the morning commute as smooth as possible.

In addition to new electronic variable message signs recently added along
the Division Street, Third Avenue and Maple/Ash corridors, the City uses a variety of other methods to notify
citizens of snow events, including local media,, Facebook and Twitter, City Cable 5 and
neighborhood email distribution networks. Citizens can also call the City’s
snow line at 509-456-2666 or sign up to receive text alerts for
specific neighborhoods by texting 509-385-5775.
