EL PASO COUNTY — Fall may have just started but it's Snow Week for some workers in El Paso County.

The county is in the process of preparing crews to make sure they have what it takes to keep our streets clear when the snow moves in.

"If they're coming into neighborhoods, try to give them that wide birth right there. Don't clean driveways out into the roads. Don't try to follow them so close that they can't see you. Give them the right of way first," Scotty Hall, Training Program Manager said.

Public Works is spending the next two weeks testing equipment and preparing for another winter in southern Colorado.
