City of Spokane crews have been responding to signal outages throughout Spokane and are working to get them turned back on after the major wind storm that whipped through the City yesterday.
As of Wednesday afternoon, there were over 40 signals not working throughout the City of Spokane. Crews are responding to these outages in order of priority. All reported signal outages have been mapped and regular progress updates will be posted.
Intersections without signals should be treated as a four way stop.
City crews are also responding to downed tree reports and are taking care of trees that are within the City limits and obstructing the street. Trees in yards are the responsibility of the property owner. Residents who need to clear storm debris from private property are encouraged to refer to the list of licensed arborist at spokanecity.org. Safety should be a priority; carefully inspect for downed power lines and gas leaks.
Please use extreme caution around downed power lines and report them to Avista at 800.227.9187. For your safety and the safety of others, please stay away from downed trees in City Parks. DO NOT climb on downed trees or attempt to cut up downed trees. To report a downed tree in a city park, please call Urban Forestry at 509.363.5495. To report a downed tree in a city street, please call Street Dispatch at: 509.625.7733
