Which Fort Collins Roads Get Plowed 1st in Winter Storms
Its cold and I love it, so long as everyone takes their time and stays safe out there.
This morning my breaks let me down at the most unexpected time while going only 10 mph and I saw several people pulled over. However, once I got on I-25 things were pretty smooth and traffic seemed to be moving only about 5 mph slower than usual.
Denver however got the brunt of the snow this morning. Roads are slick and traffic is reportedly moving very slowly heading into and out of the city.
Fort Collins Snow Plow Priority, according to the Coloradoan:
1. College Avenue, Prospect Road, Lemay Avenue and Harmony Road
- These roads provide access to medical facilities and emergency services which is why they are plowed first
2. Remington and Swallow Road
3. School bus routes and residential neighborhoods
