As more snow is in the forecast for Colorado this weekend, the Colorado Department of Transportation has an important reminder for drivers: give the plows room to clear snow.
Snow plow crews have been out in full force across the Front Range all day Monday.
Dozens of snow plows are on standby at Denver Public Works ready to tackle the snowy roads.
The Colorado Department of Transportation is doing their best to keep roads safe but there has been more snow and ice than usual so far and they are running low on Ice Slicer de-icer.
There’s a lot of prep work to be done to keep drivers moving through the metro area before that snow begins to fall.
Snowplow operators say they can’t be everywhere at once, but they are getting some high-tech help this winter in three states using a new digital intelligence system built in Boulder.
Colorado Department of Transportation snowplow drivers are cleaning up the snow and bracing for another round in parts of the Denver area before a storm system moves out.
The snow began falling hours before the sun came up Wednesday. The ground was still warm when the snow began to fall and it melted.
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.
With snow in the forecast for next week, Denver Public Works said their crews are ready for an early blast of winter.
