Snowplow "Know How"
As winter has arrived, here are 10 useful tips and information points for learning and knowing how to cope with the winter snow removal season, provided by: Eagle County Road and Bridge and the EagleVail Compliance Department.
1. Snow removal crews begin working in the very early morning, usually around 3am to 4am and continue until all routes are complete. The crews are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
2. Main roads are plowed first which are the school bus routes and emergency routes (Priority One roads). The side streets which are the residential collector streets, school and business accesses, and lesser traveled streets such as cul-de-sacs are plowed next (Priority Two and Three roads). Some times it may be later in the day before the Priority Two and Priority Three roads are plowed.
3. Be patient with the snow removal process and drive with caution around the equipment that is used.
4. Be sure to educate children about the dangers of playing near snow removal equipment and to not dig snow forts or caves in snow banks.
5. Wear reflective clothing if you are jogging or walking along a road in darkness.
6. Try to wait to shovel driveways until after the snow plows have finished and do not put snow or any other debris in the roadway per Colorado Revised Statute section 42-4-1406 & 42-4-411.
7. Try to wait to place trash cans out for pick-up until snowplows are finished and to retrieve them as soon as they are emptied. In addition cans should be 3 to 4 feet inside the Driveway especially on snow days.
8. Be aware that it is illegal to park on county maintained roads or the county road right-of-way.
9. The county road right-of-way normally extends approximately 12.5 feet off of the edge of the road which is most of the time into the property owner’s landscaping. The right-of-way is intended to be utilized for snow storage, so it is therefore not recommended that any valuable landscaping be placed within this area. Shrubs and other valuable landscaping items may become damaged from snow removal equipment and the weight of the snow. It is the responsibility of the property owner to repair and maintain the landscaping within the right-of-way.
Complaints, concerns, or suggestions may be directed to the EagleVail Compliance Department at: (970) 790-1221 or e-mail email@example.com
Thank you and have a fun and safe winter!
