Dozens of snow plows are on standby at Denver Public Works ready to tackle the snowy roads.
The dry and clear forecast this week is giving road crews in the mountains a chance to remove the mountains of snow piling up since New Year’s Day.
The City of Denver rolled out the plows for residential and side streets for this storm. But other cities and communities aren’t so lucky.
Denver Mayor Michael Hancock says he’s proud of the work road crews have accomplished in the first day of the winter storm that hit Colorado.
Road crews will remain on the streets of Denver, working to clear snow, until at least noon Saturday.
Road crews with the Colorado Department of Transportation are preparing for significant snow along the Front Range, Denver metro area and Eastern Plains. Denver will plow residential streets for this storm.
With the snow tapering off, crews in Denver are focusing on keeping the roads from icing up overnight.
