Spokane County road crews are working long days that stretch into the overnight hours to plow, sand/deice more than 51-hundred lane miles of road (the largest county road system in Washington State). Crews are keeping the main arterials and emergency routes clear, and are also working with graders at higher elevations and south of I-90 where they received more snow. Forecasters also warn that there is a chance of continuing snow showers this afternoon and/or a few lingering flurries.
The forecast for Monday night is dry and cold, but freezing fog is also expected to develop in some areas which will contribute to black ice conditions for the morning commute. With that in mind, crews will continue applying sand and granular deicer at locations prone to forming ice (intersections, hills, curves and bridges). Motorists are reminded to stay 50-feet behind our equipment and never attempt to pass on the right. For more information, go to www.spokanecounty.org/publicworks. Public Works’ Snow Plow Activity Map is also updated regularly.
