Welcome to the City of Coeur d'Alene Streets & Engineering Department Snow page. See basic info and a written plowing update below the snow plow map.

Snow Plow Map
Note: This map is the City's first test of keeping the community updated about plowing efforts during the 2016-2017 weather. We may still be working out some kinks, and we appreciate your patience! This map is only live during snowy times when plowing is necessary. A note here will indicate if it is currently live. The City's goal this year is to have the entire community plowed within 30 hours. See how we prioritize roads to plow in our annual City Council-adopted Snow Plan in the sidebar menu.

This map shows plowed areas or roads in blue. Second finished plows show in purple and a third shows in orange. Areas marked green are being worked on.

Map Status: New snowfalling Feb. 8; first updates morning of Feb. 9

Here you will find both fun and important things the department does for planning each winter. The fun includes our "Name the Storm Contest," Paint the Plows and open house information.

As you navigate to links, we encourage you to take a look at the Snow Guide. This guide has many of the policy and procedures adopted by City Council. Review the adopted Snow Plan to see how we tackle winter weather, what our plowing priorities are and more.

Also check the left-hand sidebar to review our snow plow routes (posted during the snowy weather).

If you have specific question, please call the department at (208) 769-2235.

February 9th 4am UPDATE:

Street crews worked around the clock and mother nature continues to be relentless. Around 2:30 a blanket of freezing rain move into the region and as of 4 am it continues.

Crews have begun to re-plow the arterials, sand and de-ice them as they go.

Please take extra time during your morning commute. Many of the roads are very slick. Plow teams currently are concentrating on Atlas, Seltice, 3rd St, 4th St., Gov’t Way, Ramsey, Ironwood, NW Blvd.
