SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. — Spokane Valley road crews will be plowing residential streets starting at 5 p.m. Wednesday night.

At 1:30 p.m. Spokane Valley got several inches of snow from the snowstorm. It is forecasted that snow will fade away later in the evening, allowing crews to work on the roads overnight. They will also be applying salt and deicer to main arterials, intersections and hills.

The City says it can take around 48-72 hours to remove snow in residential areas altogether. You can track progress on the streets here.

The City of Spokane Valley is asking you to park your vehicle in your driveway and remove things off the street that might create obstacles in the area. If you are driving, give crews space to work and try not to pass them.

You are also being asked to remove snow from the sidewalks for people to walk on safely. It is required that you remove snow from sidewalks within 48 hours after the storm ends (when it rains more than three inches).

WSDOT will plow Trent Avenue (SR 290) and Pines Road (SR 27). Spokane Valley will not plow privately-owned roads.
