Spokane snow plows are primarily working back on the snow emergency routes and major arterials, officials said this morning.

With six new inches of snow, clearing those routes becomes a priority, officials said.

“We’re also plowing in the residential hill routes,” said city spokeswoman Marlene Feist.

City officials are urging residents to clear sidewalks and fire hydrants today to assist with safety issues, she said.

Browne’s Addition plowing starts tomorrow at 9 a.m.
