Snow Removal Equipment
Arapahoe County's snow removal equipment includes trucks, plows, sanders, graders and loaders.

During normal operations, Ice Slicer® is spread on paved roads to assist with ice melting. Plowing operations are implemented when conditions warrant. State environmental guidelines now restrict the amount of sand / salt that can be applied per lane mile by approximately 20 percent the application rate used in 1989.

Rural roads within the county are usually plowed by graders, and since most rural roads are not paved, sand / salt is not applied to these roads. When high winds or deep snow accumulations create drifting conditions in rural areas, plowing may be delayed until the storm passes. Snow removal in rural areas is scheduled for daylight hours only. However, crews may work extended hours to open roadways.

The County may use extra manpower and equipment of private, local contractors to plow streets. The County does not have to commit taxpayer funds to acquire and maintain limited-use equipment.
