Plowing & De-Icing Operations

Overview
Plowing and de-icing operations begin when there is an accumulation of snow or ice and conditions warrant. Plowed roads will be widened and cleanup operations will commence after Priority 1 and 2 roadways have been made accessible.

The Public Works Director or his designee, in conjunction with the Parker Police Department and the South Metro Fire Rescue Authority, may close a roadway as a result of hazardous snow and/or icy conditions. The Public Works Department utilizes the services of the National Weather Service and coordinates snow operations with the Parker Police Department.

The Public Works Department also maintains communication during all storm events with the Colorado Department of Transportation, Douglas County Public Works Department, and Douglas County Sheriff's Department.
