CDOT snowplow drivers are busy cleaning up a second round of snow along the Front Range this morning. Snow fell on Denver and Northern Colorado last night and into early this morning with colder temperatures allowing more of the snow to stay on the roads. For the Denver-Boulder area an additional 2 to 4 inches of snow is expected while the foothills and Monument Hill areas could both receive an additional 3 to 7 inches.

Governor Hickenlooper and the National Weather Service have designated this week “Winter Weather Awareness Week” in Colorado. Maintenance crews from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) in Larimer and Weld counties are prepared for the impending winter season with 47 maintenance employees dedicated to plowing and de-icing state highways.
