EL PASO COUNTY – Crews in El Paso County are making progress in the storm clean-up following last week’s blizzard, telling News 5 that most roads in the county provide basic access again.

With several down trees and signs, crews have to clear areas before any more work can begin.

Then there is the melting problem.

Highway Superintendent Tim Stickel says the gravel roads are going to have some issues and it will take time before crews can get in there to work.

The county also wants to thank first responders and the public for all their patience.

Crews say you should treat intersections with missing signs like a four-way stop and call the El Paso County Citizens Connect to report any problems.
