“Almost a week after a major winter storm dropped nearly a foot of snow on Denver, the city will be deicing residential streets to speed up recovery. Denver Public Works (DPW) made the announcement late Monday afternoon, just hours after the department said adding deicing material to those streets won’t be effective.
Eulois Cleckley, Executive Director of DPW, said in a statement that this is an “unprecedented effort” and a departure from their standard operating procedure.
“This most recent snowstorm was particularly impactful due to snowfall amounts, snowfall rates, and low temperatures and we’ve heard people’s concerns about the condition of our roadways,” Cleckley said. “We hope this step of dropping deicer on the side streets shows our residents that we are listening and will take necessary actions to address their concerns.”
The statement also said they will be using 30 plows and dropping deicer on residential roads starting Monday night through Tuesday morning. They said every side street in the city will be addressed.”
