Snow and Ice Removal Information

Because every snowstorm is different – temperature, moisture content, wind velocity and storm duration, etc.  we implement a snow removal plan unique to each storm.  The primary focus is always on public safety.

Snow removal planning efforts for a snow storm begin as soon as forecasts of impending weather events are received from the National Weather Service and Skyview Weather.  Snow forecasts are continually monitored to determine when the storm will arrive, what snow accumulations can be expected, storm intensity, duration and what air temperatures can be anticipated.

For information on snow and ice removal responsibilities on state highways within Douglas County, visit Colorado Department of Transportation. For snow and ice removal practices by the incorporated cities and towns in the County, please visit Castle Rock, Castle Pines, Lone Tree or Parker.

In Highlands Ranch, Douglas County is responsible for plowing roads and neighborhoods, while the Highlands Ranch Metro District is responsible for trails, community parking lots and more.
