Snow removal season’s here in Avon

Avon, CO Colorado

AVON –With snow plow season underway, Avon’s public works department has a few informational tips for residents.

During storms, the department operates snow plows from 3 a.m. to 11 p.m. The department strives to make sure no road will go completely unplowed in any 24-hour period.

Streets

Plow trucks cannot stop or turn as readily as most vehicles. Please allow ample space for the snowplows to maneuver freely.

Driveways

When plowing is required, snow berms are created across driveways. Removal of this snow in driveways is the responsibility of the property owner.

Private snow plowing

Property owners should be aware that the placing, dumping or pushing of snow onto town streets or right-of-ways from adjacent properties is prohibited.

Sidewalks

The town of Avon does provide some sidewalk clearing in the core area of town, along with bike path clearing for pedestrians. Property owners are responsible for sidewalks abutting or adjacent to their property. Any accumulation of snow must be removed within 24 hours after a storm.

To report a road condition, please contact Avon public works at 970-748-4100.
