The City of Spokane expects to complete work by about 10 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 12, on the Full-City Plow initiated at 5:30 p.m. on Friday evening. The plow effort was completed in about two and a half days and met the City’s goal of completing in a full-City plow in 3 days or less.

Crews will continue to work in arterials overnight and in the early morning hours to prepare for the Monday morning commute. Also, additional snow plowing and cleanup will happen tomorrow, as needed, in residential locations around the City. City snow crews remain in winter operations, working seven days a week monitoring weather and street conditions. When driving in wintry conditions, the City is asking motorists to slow down, be patient, and drive according to the conditions.

After 10 p.m., 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. Customer service staff also will be available on Monday to take those calls as well.

While residential plowing is wrapping up, the need for warm, safe places for those experiencing homelessness remains. The City has worked with operators of shelters and warming centers to continue to take additional people now and as temperatures drop in the coming days.
