Spokane snow plow update; view plowing map

 

Spokane street crews will focus on knocking down snow berms, preventing slick roads and clearing Browne’s Addition now that the rest of the city’s streets have been plowed, officials said Sunday.

North-south streets in Browne’s Addition are scheduled for plowing on Tuesday. On Wednesday, crews are expected to plow east-west streets, said Marlene Feist, city spokeswoman.

“Because streets in Browne’s Addition are very narrow, all vehicles must be moved to accommodate the plows,” Feist said. “Vehicles that aren’t moved will be towed.”

With the snow emergency lifted, Spokane’s street crews will return to regular winter operations. Based on the coming week’s weather forecast crews should be able to remain in that mode.

Up to three inches of snow was forecast Sunday night, but temperatures today are forecast slightly above freezing with partly sunny skies, according to the National Weather Service. Snow is in the forecast with little or no accumulation through Wednesday. Rain is expected on Thursday.
