SPOKANE, Wash. – The City of Spokane continued with its full-city plow Saturday. City snow removal crews are working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until all the streets are plowed within the city. The break in the snowfall Saturday allowed crews to make a considerable amount of progress. About 50 employees were out working to clear snow. Under the city’s revamped snow removal plan, a full-city plow should take about three days to complete unless there is additional snowfall.

Vehicles should be parked on the odd side of the street in residential areas to assist plows. Crews generally will leave berms at the end of driveways in the residential areas. Because much of the snow on the downtown streets has melted, the city will not impose parking restrictions there.

The city of Spokane asked that citizens clear a 36-inch path on sidewalks with a goal of removing snow by 9 a.m. after the end of snowfall. Please assist your neighbors who may need help removing snow from their driveways and sidewalks. Seniors or disabled individuals can call 311 to connect with resources for shoveling sidewalks.

The city of Spokane said it would continue to work in all four quadrants of the city as the full-city plow progresses. The order of plowing by quadrant for the rest of the city’s residential routes is expected to proceed as follows:

  • Northeast-Minnehaha (Route 16), Hillyard (Route 17), Bemiss (Route 18), Whitman (Route 19), and Shiloh Hills (Route 27)
  • Northwest-Balboa/South Indian Trail (Route 24), Northwest (Route 23), Browne’s Addition (Route 1), West Central (Route 7), North Hill (Route 21), and Audubon/Downriver (Route 22)
  • Southeast-Rockwood Hills (Route 12), East Central (Route 3), and Southgate (Route 15)
  • Southwest-Grandview/Thorpe (Route 9), Cliff-Cannon (Route 2), Manito/Cannon (Route 11), West Hills (Route 8), and Comstock (Route 14)
