What are the guidelines for plowing Colorado roads?

It’s one of the first questions we ask whenever we get a decent amount of snowfall. We wonder when and if the streets in our neighborhood are even going to be plowed. There are clear guidelines for how interstates, highways and roads are plowed across the state.

CDOT plows roughly 23,000 lane miles. It’s a giant undertaking and one that you can keep track of before you head out on a trip. Yes, you can check on statewide road conditions through their cotrip.org site, but you can also take a look at where the CDOT snow plows are working during a storm 24-hours a day. You can track the plows here.
