The City of Spokane completed work in the early morning hours of Sunday, Jan. 2, on the Full-City Plow initiated on Thursday, Dec. 30. The plow effort met the City’s time goal of completing a full plow in three days. Accessing various Public Works equipment and personnel contributed to meeting the goal of plowing 2,200 lane miles of City streets.

“The extreme cold combined with frozen roads make difficult plowing conditions that is hard on the equipment and drivers,” says Clint Harris, Streets Director. “The team effort of Public Works departments provides the flexibility needed to reach our three-day goal.”

City snow crews remain in winter operations, working seven days a week monitoring weather and street conditions. Staff are preparing to respond to next round of snow that is expected tonight and tomorrow with equipment maintenance and are replenishing material supplies.
