City of Brighton: Snowstorm cleanup could take a while

Posted

BRIGHTON -- City of Brighton officials say cleanup from this weekend's blizzard could take several days.

The statement said the primary routes in town are drivable. All of the area around the Prairie CVenter and hospital-area streets are open, too. County Road 2 is open from 19th Avenue to US HIghway 85 and partially open from 19th to 50th avenues. The city statement said 70 percent of the area's secondary roads have at least one functioning lane.

Crews are working to fully reopen CR 2/Baseline Road. There are several abandoned vehicles that are delaying that effort, the city said. The effort also includes secondary school streets, 144th and 136th avenues and County Road 4 and County Road 6.

"With snow removal expected to continue over the next few days, here is what to expect for residential streets," the city statement said:

  • Your residential street may not be plowed for several days

  • The city will plow a single lane down the middle of the road

  • Plowing will create mounds of snow on either side of the plowed lane

  • Shoveling snow from one’s car or driveway is the responsibility of the property owner

  • The city will respond to problematic areas after all roads are cleared, which could be several days.

Public works crews have been working around the clock to clear roads, the city said.
