DENVER – The City and County of Denver’s plow drivers remain on duty at this hour, working to clear the main streets after yesterday’s storm and in preparation for the possibility of snow showers tomorrow.

DOTI has ended its deployment of the residential plows after four shifts and 48 hours on the job, successfully shaving off the top few inches of snow from the side streets, clearing a path to main streets and preventing deep ice ruts from forming.

Sidewalk reminder: Denver requires that property owners clear snow and ice from their sidewalks, including adjacent ADA ramps. After snow has stopped falling, businesses need to begin clearing their sidewalks immediately. Residents need to clear their sidewalks by the next day. Inspectors with Community Planning and Development leave a time-stamped notice at properties with un-shoveled sidewalks.  After receiving a notice, businesses have four hours and residences have 24 hours before the inspector’s re-check and a potential $150 fine.
