Town of Windsor residents are reminded to slow down and stay three to four car lengths behind snowplows while driving on the road when snow is present. The primary focus after major snowfall is to clear all arterial streets for emergency responders, schools, bus routes and motorists and to provide a basic network of connected main streets.
The town’s snow and ice removal crews work around-the-clock to monitor incoming storms and determine severity to have the appropriate resources to clear and maintain the roads in a timely manner. Main arterials are plowed several times a day as frequently as possible, while residential streets and cul-de-sacs are cleared on an as-needed basis.
Snowplows are equipped with Ice Buster or Torch RT, a granular rock salt product pre-wetted with Apex Meltdown, to reduce corrosion while increasing de-icing performance on all roadways. Windsor communicates with Larimer County, Weld County, Loveland, Severance and the Colorado Department of Transportation during ongoing storms to dispatch plows in as many areas of town as possible.
Each snowstorm varies in conditions such as temperature, wind speed and direction. The snow plan is modified to best serve the incoming storm. The Town Manager maintains the right and responsibility for the declaration of a snow emergency outside of the designated plan.
