The city's Public Works Department is geared up for the winter season with its snow and ice-control program. During a snow storm, the goal is to clear Priority 1 streets first. Once all Priority 1 streets are considered passable, crews begin plowing and de-icing Priority 2 streets. If Littleton receives six or more inches of snow, crews will plow down the center of residential streets when all Priority 1 and Priority 2 streets are clear.
The city's preparedness includes:
The Colorado Department of Transportation manages snow and ice control on Santa Fe Drive, Belleview Avenue (east of Federal Boulevard), Platte Canyon Road and C-470.
For pedestrians safety, residents and businesses are required to remove snow from sidewalks and other public right-of-ways on their property (including RTD bus stops) within 24 hours after snow fall has ended.
