Snow storms recede, plowing continues

 

Spokane remains under a stage 2 snow declaration, and snow crews are working around the clock to clear roadways, the city said Saturday.

So far, crews have completed work in the arterials, on STA fixed bus routes and on all residential hill routes.

Tonight, the city is keeping sanders and deicers on arterials as temperatures approach freezing.

Some residential areas still need plowed and the city is reminding residents to park on the odd side of the street to give plows more room.

In Browne’s Addition, the city will plow the north-south streets Tuesday starting at 9 a.m. and the east-west streets Wednesday starting at the same time. Because the streets in Browne’s Addition are so narrow, vehicles parked in those areas when the plows come through will be towed.

More information is available at city’s website, Twitter and Facebook page. Residents can check the plows’ progress at www.spokanestreetdepartment.org/snowplow.htm or by calling the Snow Removal Hotline at 456-2666.
