County Crews Make Progress Plowing and Sanding

Tackling Priority One and Two Routes in 12-Hour Shifts

SPOKANE COUNTY, November 30, 2022 – Crews will continue working 12-hour shifts to plow and sand the county’s Priority One and Two Routes. Priority One focuses on emergency routes and major arterials, while Priority Two adds secondary roads. Crews made significant progress today, but their continued progress could be hampered by additional snowfall. With that in mind, the Public Works Department has called in additional resources with private contractors to augment our road crews.

If it is possible to work from home – please stay off the roads. In addition, move any obstacles that might be in the street/road that serves your property (vehicles, garbage cans, basketball hoops) and could prevent plows/graders from clearing to the curbs.

Again, with more snow in the forecast for the remainder of the week – crews will probably return to clearing the county’s Priority One and Two Routes. This means that it could take several days to complete clearing residential areas. The public’s understanding and patience is appreciated.
