With the snow storm in full swing, the Town would like to remind residents of our snow plowing priority system. It is our goal to provide the best snow service possible within the constraints of budget, personnel and available equipment. Keep in mind that Parker Road/State Highway 83 is maintained and plowed by the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), not the Town.
The Public Works Department has a snow plowing priority system in place. However, the time required to clear the roads depends on the snowstorm intensity, duration, wind and the temperature.
Arterial roadways are our top priority and will be cleared first; these are the major roadways that carry the most volume, such as Stroh Road, Hess Road, 20-Mile Road, Cottonwood Drive, Canterberry Parkway, Lincoln Avenue, Jordan Road, Pine Drive, Hilltop Road and Mainstreet.
Collector streets, including but not limited to Dransfeldt, Riva Ridge, J. Morgan, Nate, Motsenbocker, Bradbury Parkway, Clark Farms Drive, Pine Lane, Apache Plume, Crown Crest Boulevard, Tallman, Omaha and Canterberry Trail, are our second priority. These are streets that provide access to the major arterial roadways. They will be cleared once the major roadways have been plowed.
School bus routes not already plowed under priority two are our third priority and will be plowed when accumulation exceeds three inches.
Local residential roads and cul-de-sacs that provide traffic flow within subdivisions and access to homes are not plowed unless 10 inches or more snow has fallen, or if major drifting has
occurred. Snow depths are determined by the National Weather Service reporting within the Town limits.
