Snow Plow Routes

Content

Despite the infrequency of storms, the City of Colorado Springs Operations & Maintenance Division must be prepared for minor and major snowstorms from September through May. The City's Operations & Maintenance Division is responsible for servicing 5,833 lane miles of roadway, extending over a 194 square mile area. While average annual snowfall stands at 42 inches, snow can pile up quickly at varying rates throughout the City. Elevation and wind can compound accumulation, causing an immediate impact on the City's mobility. Hence, the need for safe and passable streets is a priority for the Operations & Maintenance Division. Due to resource constraints residential streets will not be plowed until at least 6" of snow has fallen.
