SPOKANE, Wash. -

Wednesday 5:00 p.m.: The City of Spokane has declared a stage 1 snow event in response to the winter weather. Cars should be moved to the even side of the street on residential hill routes by 11 p.m. Wednesday evening to allow snow plows to pass. 

Crews will focus on snow emergency routes including arterials, hospital district routes, STA fixed bus routes, outlying areas, neighborhood business centers, the central business district, and residential hills. 

During a Stage 1 Event citizens are asked to:

  • Move parked cars off all arterials and fixed STA bus routes
  • Move parked cars in residential hill routes to the odd side of the street
  • Clear sidewalks of snow within 24 hours

The City also asks motorists to:

  • Slow down, be patient, and drive according to conditions.
  • Not to follow plows closely.  They can generate clouds of snow making it difficult to see and can kick up sand.  (Staying four car lengths back is a good rule of thumb)
  • Not try to pass plow trucks; it’s very dangerous.
  • Not get between plows as they often work in teams of two or three 
  • Drive with caution when near a plow as the plow operator may not have the same field of vision as a smaller vehicle.  You will see them, but they may not see you.

    SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Proposed changes to Washington state's overtime rules could make more professional workers eligible for time-and-a-half pay. The Spokesman-Review reports a draft concept by the state Department of Labor and Industries proposes overtime eligibility for workers earning up to $74,800 in 2019.
