Denver Public Works is responsible for snow removal on Denver city streets. Crews from the Street Maintenance, Wastewater, and Traffic Engineering Services divisions clear about 1800 lane miles on arterials (streets with stripes) when snow accumulates during a storm.
Denver Public Works plows streets that are within the City limits. The Colorado Department of Transportation plows state highways that fall on City limits like Sheridan Blvd., Hampden Ave., Leetsdale Dr., Santa Fe Dr. (south of Alameda), and Brighton Blvd. (north of I-70).
