READ IT: Snow Update From Spokane County
FROM SPOKANE COUNTY: Since Sunday night, crews have been working around-the-clock to clear more than 2,500 miles of road in unincorporated Spokane County. Crews will continue to work in 12-hour shifts, using 90 pieces of equipment (de-icing and sanding trucks, plows and graders) until roads are clear and conditions improve.
This morning, crews are working to keep Priority 1 roads (emergency routes and primary arterials) clear, while trying to make progress on Priority 2 and 3 roads (secondary arterials, hilly residential, flat residential). County crews have also been sanding and deicing hills and intersections to the north and south where higher elevations receive more snow. To check the progress of county plows, go to www.spokanecounty.org/engineer and use the quick link "Snow Plow Priority Routes."
Be advised that driveway berms are your responsibility, so don't blow or shovel snow into the road! This will prevent more snow and ice from being pushed into your driveway by county plows.
Motorists are also asked to be aware of changing road conditions and slow down during the evening and morning commute. The public can assist snow removal efforts by moving parked cars off of streets and roads.
