Snow and ice
Snow removal priorities
We do our best to get streets open as quickly as possible. In order to provide the best service to the city, we use a priority system for plowing. For more information, see the snow removal priority map.
- Priority 1: Arterials considered to be the minimum network which must be kept open to provide a transportation system connecting hospitals, police and fire stations.
- Priority 2: Remaining arterials and selected collectors, bus routes, and areas around schools
- Priority 3: Remaining collectors covering major traffic volume streets and selected hot spots such as intersections, hills, and known routes for individuals with disabilities
- Priority 4: All remaining streets, such as residential and local streets. These streets will not receive regular winter maintenance and will only be plowed if traffic movement is blocked and the higher priority streets are clear
In instances where we are unable to maintain all streets, priority 3 will be dropped first followed by priority 2. Priority 1 streets will be kept open at all times.
Call 970-351-SNOW (7669) to request snow removal in your area.
