Residential Streets Receive No De-Icing

Grand Junction road crews have been hard at work keeping our roads clear over the past few days after the recent snowfall.

The city is not responsible for clearing residential streets. Frequently used streets are the first priority for road crews.

The city follows a three phase snow plan determined by the amount of snow ranging from light, to medium, to heavy. Only residential areas classified as special need locations receive extra attention.

Grand Junction Street Systems Manager Doug Cline says areas with steep hills, roads with school bus routes, and trash pick-up routes classify as special needs.

Cline says his crews try to stay ahead of the storms, but if you do find yourself on a street that has not been de-iced, he recommends you allow plenty of distance between you and the next car, slow down, and drive according to the conditions.
