The sign crew manufactures all of the road signs that are posted along county roads. If there is a sign missing, damaged, vandalized, or incorrect, we can put in a work order to have a new one made and replaced. This same crew also paints the stripes and markings on the roadway surfaces. Come springtime when the weather allows, the faded paint will be refreshed.
We have a separate traffic signal crew that ensures that our traffic signals are functioning properly. If there is a situation where the traffic signals are not working and there are other unlit traffic signals or streetlights in the area, this is most likely indicative of a power outage. The local power supplier (Avista, Inland Power and Light, etc.) would need to be notified. The placement of street lamps, which provide illumination for streets and intersections, is determined by Spokane County. Once installed these lights are maintained by the local power company.
