Snow Services
Orange snowplow drives down the streetOf the 770 lane miles within Commerce City limits, our street maintenance division conducts snow removal operations on approximately 257 lane miles with nine plows. Other roads within the city are maintained by Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and by Adams County.

Snow Removal Plan
The city’s snow removal plan classifies snow storms into three categories and places priority on clearing major roads, such as Quebec Parkway and Tower Road first, and then on collector streets that connect hospitals, fire stations, police stations, and schools. Plowing generally begins after 2 inches of snow accumulates, unless storm conditions warrant a different approach.

To see what streets are maintained by the city, CDOT or Adams County view the city's snow route map  or call the city's weather emergency hotline at 303-227-8776 for an update on city operations.

Clear Your Sidewalks
Residents play an important part in snow removal duties within neighborhoods by keeping sidewalks clear of snow and ice. According to the city’s codes, all sidewalks must be clear of snow and ice 24 hours from the last accumulation of snow and/or ice.

There are opportunities for residents to help their neighbors with snow removal by participating in the The Volunteers of America Snow Buddy program. The VoA pairs volunteers with older adults to remove snow and ice from sidewalks. Contact Volunteers of America at 720-264-3379 or email for more information.
