The City of Spokane has now completed work on the Full-City Plow initiated on Wednesday at 9 a.m., meeting its commitment to complete such an effort in about three days.

Crews will complete some final snow cleanup work around the City tonight and over the weekend. They also will deice and sand in the arterials with expected very cold conditions later in the weekend. Citizens who note that their block was missed by plows can call 3-1-1 to report the miss; they should follow the instructions on the recording to make the report.

During this full-City plow, gates used to lessen berms at the end of driveways primarily were used in the Nevada Heights, Cliff/Cannon, Grandview Thorpe, and North Indian Trail residential plow routes, among other places. They were used in other areas of the City in the two previous Full-City Plows this snow season.

Just as a reminder, crews generally do leave berms at the end of driveways in the residential areas when plowing. Only seven pieces of equipment have been outfitted with the gates as part of a pilot project this year.
