Spokane County Roads Department crew members in all districts are back to normal 8 hour shifts after a challenging Holiday schedule where crews worked 12 hr shifts until most roads were cleared. The department wants to thank Spokane County citizens for their patience as crews worked around the clock during the Christmas Season. Several times crews were working on residential roads and had to be pulled out only to start working on priority 1 main arterial roads again due to high snow accumulations. We know this was frustrating for some citizens, but again, thank you for your patience.
During snow events, Spokane County crews work in 12-hour shifts around the clock to ensure the entire 2,527 road system is plowed. For more detailed winter roads maintenance information, please visit: Winter Roads Maintenance
Road maintenance activities are prioritized in a way that address potentially dangerous situations first, followed by regular repairs, then preventive maintenance as funds allow.
