Winter Roads Maintenance
The Road Department has 36 snow plows/sanding trucks, 34 graders, and 4 deicing trucks. Spokane County crews work in 12-hour shifts around the clock to ensure the entire road system (5,100+ lane miles) is plowed.
Priority 1 - Major Arterials
Priority 2 - Secondary Arterials
Priority 3 - Residentials
Priority 4 - Not Plowed
Spokane County has a policy regarding plowing/blowing/shoveling snow from private property onto the county road right-of-way. In accordance with the Spokane County Code Chapter 8.24, it is a misdemeanor to place material on a county road right-of-way. This creates problems for motorists who must drive over it and makes the county's snow removal efforts more difficult. The snow from your property must be left on your property.
