Spokane crews conducting full-city plow as snow continues to fall | 4 News Now | 4 News Now

SPOKANE, Wash – It could take days, but the City of Spokane has initiated a full-city plow, as snow continues to fall across the Inland Northwest.

As of noon Wednesday, between four and six inches have fallen across Spokane, with more reported in the outlying areas.

City of Spokane crews will focus on hills and arterials, hoping to get to residential areas by Thursday morning.

WEATHER ALERT DAY: Even more snow than expected

A full-city plow is underway, but the city estimates it will take three days to complete, once the snow stops falling.

The city says due to an overwhelming number of requests, My Spokane 311 is no longer available as an option to connect senior citizens and disabled people to snow removal services.

“Residents are encouraged to help their neighbors, friends and family who are not able to clear their sidewalks and driveways,” said Public Works Communications Manager Kirstin Davis.

Some reminders:

-Vehicles need to park on the odd side of the street in residential areas to make room for plows

-The City of Spokane asks that you clear a 36-inch pedestrian path on sidewalks

-Don’t blow or shovel snow into the street, but back into your yard

-Consider clearing snow and ice around mailboxes and storm drains
