Breckenridge prioritizes plowing

Having gotten two feet of snow in 24 hours in parts of town, the Breckenridge Public Works Department has put all snowplows to work trying to clear the streets and sidewalks quickly, according to an electronic update from the town sent out Wednesday.

The town prioritizes plowing on bus routes and major roadways first. Sidewalks and streets are plowed based on their proximity to the core of town. The town tries to get plows out to outlying and residential areas within 48 to 72 hours after a storm, but expects to be able to get plows to the outskirts of town within the next 24 to 36 hours.

Breckenridge officials are asking everyone to follow all posted street and overnight parking signs to enable plows to remove snow from parking areas in the evening.
