Snow update from the city

With a couple inches of snow on the ground, City of Spokane street crews have been out since the early hours of the morning Monday plowing snow and putting down de-icer on City streets.
Crews concentrated first on hills and now are working on arterials throughout the City.  With snowfall now tapered off, the City is working to improve driving conditions before very cold weather sets in tonight.
Meanwhile, the City has opened warming shelters for the homeless tonight at the Salvation Army for families, Hope House for single women, and House of Charity for single men.  Shelter space is still available at Crosswalk for youth/teens.
Citizens can check the progress of the plows on the arterials on the City’s web site by clicking here: http://www.spokanestreetdepartment.org/snowplow.htm.  Click on “Snow Plowing Progress Map.”  This web page also includes overall information on the City’s snow removal plan.
Plow route maps and other snow removal information also can be found in the City’s utility bills in November, in the current edition of the Inlander, and in last Thursday’s Voice sections in the Spokesman-Review.

About this blog

Welcome to the Hillyard neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last six years I've worked for The Spokesman-Review.

In April, I started a neighborhood blog on South Perry Street (where I live). When it came time to expand the blog activity, Hillyard was an easy pick: There is so much going on in this neighborhood in terms of new businesses and street improvements, festivals and new construction - and there is a strong sense of neighborhood history and pride. I'm looking forward to highlighting all of that on this blog.
