Here's a look at what's happening on the roads this morning.
The El Paso County Department of Transportation reports snow removal and sanding trucks have worked on all roads considered a "priority." Most have been plowed and/or sanded at least twice.
Priority Two roads are now getting worked on. That includes residential streets. The county says they will continue working on the roads until at least early afternoon.
More information from a county press release:
Thirty-two plow trucks and eleven graders are currently at work on county roads.
Reported snow depths are widely varied with ten inches or more reported in the Ute Pass area and five to seven typical in other areas of the county.
Wind and extremely cold temperatures continue to causing icy conditions. Anti-ice materials are being used in the northern portion of the county with anti-skid materials in use on all county roads.
El Paso County is responsible for the maintenance of more than two-thousand miles of roadway.
