With recent snow accumulations the City has been working hard to clear streets of snow, and downtown Spokane is no exception.
Over the past two days, crews have applied deicer throughout downtown. This helped reduce the amount of snow and ice in preparation for tonight’s plowing efforts.
Throughout the day Parking Enforcement Officers placed flyers on vehicles warning them about the upcoming snow removal plans. In addition, these flyers included free parking locations for people impacted by tonight’s snow plowing plans.
Tonight and Wednesday crews will be working downtown starting at 10 p.m. No parking is in place from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. both of these days. This is to ensure plows can clear parking lanes of snow. Cars that are not moved off the street may be towed or bermed in.
The City has arranged for free vehicle parking during plowing at the following locations:
@spokanefire - Today at 4:29 p.m. - Incident: 2017004316 - Haz Mat - Investigation Location: W 3rd Ave and S Spruce St
@spokanepd - Yesterday at 2:15 p.m. - MEDIA: let's meet dean/nettleton and I will get you info. SP
