City Lifts Stage 2 Snow Emergency; Full City Plow Complete

SPOKANE, Wash. - The City of Spokane has lifted its Stage 2 Snow Emergency as of 11 a.m., Sunday, Jan. 22, and is returning to regular winter operations.  A full City plow has been completed with the exception of Browne's Addition, which is scheduled for plowing on Tuesday and Wednesday, Jan 24 and 25.

Street crews completed the full-City plow in less than three days with the help of private contractors, who are being released.  It is possible that crews may have missed blocks.  Citizens should call 625-7733 to report an unplowed section. 

For the rest of the day, the City will use de-icers and sanders to deal with icy spots in the arterials.  They also will work downtown to spread the center snow berms and add de-icer to encourage melting. Earlier, crews plowed the snow to the center of the street in downtown to maintain on-street parking.  Motorists should not attempt to cross the berms; they will get stuck.

More snow, 1 to 3 inches, is in the forecast for tonight.  Under regular winter operations, crews will begin plowing in the arterials again as soon as there is enough snow accumulation to plow.   They will also de-ice and sand as needed.

The City will plow in Browne's Addition on Tuesday and Wednesday, starting at 9 a.m. each day.  Plowing of north-south streets is planned for Tuesday and east-west streets on Wednesday.  Because streets in Browne's Addition are very narrow, all vehicles must be moved to accommodate the plows.  Vehicles that aren't moved will be towed. 

The residential plow route map and information on the City's snow removal plan are available in today's Spokesman-Review on page A10.  Citizens may want to clip and save that information for future snowfalls.
