EL PASO COUNTY — Many in Southern Colorado woke Friday morning to more snow than expected. " In the middle of the night had to call in additional resources to come help out," said Colorado Springs Streets Division Manager, Corey Farkas. Crews were out treating roads for expected ice with small amounts of snow, when the snow portion turned to heavy snow.
"We're here so we’ve just got to adjust with it and go do the best we can with the conditions we're presented," said Troy Wiitala with El Paso County Public Works. Along Colorado’s front range changing storm conditions are more common than rare. Part of snow removal strategy is adapting to whatever comes with a storm.
Overnight Friday into Saturday crews will continue working. Wet and slushy conditions will freeze. Roads treatments continue to improve safety for drivers..
