City Street Crews Continue to Clear Snow and Ice

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

SPOKANE, Wash. - City of Spokane street crews are continuing to clear snow and ice from arterials and STA bus routes around the City. Throughout the day on Wednesday, the City had 30 drivers and pieces of equipment—plows, de-icers, and sanders—working to improve driving conditions, especially on major hills.

With the dry snow tapering off and only light accumulations expected overnight, the City will continue to plow arterials and bus routes Wednesday evening and into Thursday. Crews will work 24 hours a day as needed.

The City will monitor street and weather conditions to determine whether any upgrades to snow removal efforts are needed. The City will notify citizens of any changes. Citizens can stay informed by checking our web site for information, following the City on Twitter at @SpokaneCity, or by "liking" our official City of Spokane facebook page.

The City's snow removal activities are designed to improve safety for motorists and pedestrians, ensure emergency responders can reach citizens, and enhance movement for pedestrians, motorists and economic activity.

The City asks motorists to slow down and use caution when driving in wintry conditions. And, citizens are reminded to clear ice and snow from sidewalks within 24 hours of a snow storm.
