Spokane County officials said a full-county plow began around 4 a.m. Wednesday morning. They said over 90 pieces of equipment, including graders, plows, sanders and deicers, are working to improve road conditions.
As of about 3:30 p.m., the north and northeast parts of the county (road districts 1 and 4) had all major arterials and secondary roads plowed, county officials said. They said tonight, crews will move into the residential areas.The southeast quadrant of the county (district 2) also finished priority one and two roads, along with Hangman's Alley. That area does not have many residential roads, but crews hope to finish up there tonight. As for the southwest quadrant of the city, (district 3), crews plan to have the residential roads knocked out tonight, which for that area means basically all paved roads, county officials said. Then they will plan to move onto gravel roads.
City crews will work 12-hour shifts around the clock until nearly 5,000 miles of roadways are cleared, officials said. County crews will work 10-12 hour shifts until the 2,500 miles of county roadways are cleared.
Anyone who is interested can track the plows by visiting the Snow Plow Activity Map on the County's website.
Officials said to stay back from snow equipment and to be mindful of your speed.
Trooper Sevigney tweeted, "If you are traveling at the speed limit today, you are going too fast."
City of Spokane officials told drivers to slow down, watch for following distances and to drive for conditions.
