Where are all the snow plows?

Wondering where all the snow plows are?

The Colorado Department of Transportation has a live map showing where all their snow plow crews are working.

Wednesday, Denver Public Works said they were deploying their fleet of big plows to address main streets.

"Main streets, or most streets with stripes, are the priority for Denver Public Works' large plows," according to the city's snow plan . "In addition to plowing the main streets, Denver frequently uses a dry deicing material (magnesium chloride) to add traction to the roadways and help break up snow and ice."

Residential streets are not usually plowed unless Denver receives 12 inches or more of snow accompanied by prolonged freezing temperatures.
