ALERT: City Of Spokane Street Crews Prepare For Snow, Then Rain

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: City of Spokane Street Department crews are preparing for heavy snow that is expected to begin Tuesday night, continue through the day Wednesday and eventually turn to rain. 

Crews will spread de-icer in advance of the storm on hills, bridges, and at intersections.  Additional crews will be added as the storm progresses, and citizens should watch for emergency declarations as the snow accumulates. 

Remember, crews now begin work in residential hill plow routes during a Stage 1 Snow Emergency.  Those routes are numbered in the 20s on the City's residential plow route map: www.spokanestreetdepartment.org/documents/snowroutemap.pdf.

"We are ready and moving," says Dave Mandyke, the City's Division Director for Utilities.  "We are particularly concerned about the anticipated changeover from snow to rain.  On top of ice and snow, the rain can cause slick and slushy conditions that are problems for motorists."

Citizens are encouraged to plan for longer commute times on Wednesday morning and evening as a result of the expected street conditions.  The Street Department and the Spokane Police Department remind motorists to slow down and drive with caution.

Citizens can get additional information on the City's snow removal plan on the City's web site at www.spokanecity.org.  Once the storm begins, check the progress of plows at http://www.spokanestreetdepartment.org/snowplow.htm
