The City of Spokane Street Department will end its Condition Red snow emergency early this evening, moving snow removal crews from the City’s Water and Wastewater departments back to their regular duties and changing shifting from 24 hours a day to usual winter scheduling of 20 hours a day. City snow removal crews have worked under Condition Red status since Dec. 17.
Two pothole repair crews are even working today to fill potholes that have been created through this freeze-thaw cycle.
In the meantime, City of Spokane Mayor Mary Verner will hold a press conference at noon today at the City’s Streets Department Normandie complex near Washington and Sinto. She will address current conditions and plans and take a moment to reflect on the last three weeks.
