DENVER (CBS4)- Snow plow crews have been patrolling the streets in the Denver metro area since snow began falling Wednesday evening. But don’t expect those blades to clear side streets.

Denver Public Works typically does not clear side streets. Only in true emergency situations where the weather is not expected to clear, a foot or more of snow, and temperatures are not expected to rise for a prolonged period of time will plows work residential streets.

“There’s not enough snow and it’s not going to be cold for that long, so it will melt off before we have to plow as necessary,” said Denver Public Works spokeswoman Christine Downs.

The City of Centennial will plow side streets after Thursday’s storm. Other cities like Lakewood and Aurora will follow Denver’s example.
