The City of Arvada's Snow and Ice control policy is to plow and apply de-icing material to arterial and collector streets on a priority basis.
Priority 1 (Red Routes) streets are arterial streets, essential streets for emergency vehicle response, streets that provide connectivity with plowed streets in adjoining jurisdictions and school zone streets.
Priority 2 (Blue Routes) streets are major and minor collector streets which provide access from Priority 1 streets to residential streets.
The Priority 1 and 2 streets are shown on the city snow plowing route map . Residential streets are not routinely plowed unless they have steep hills with chronic icing problems. However, they will be plowed if the City Manager declares a snow emergency.
