The City of Durango is responsible for plowing snow from 164 lane miles of roads within the city limits and removing snow from 55 city blocks in the Main Street commercial area.

The city provides 24-hour snow plowing during storm events in seven zones throughout the Durango. Snowplowing is prioritized to major roadways and accesses to fire stations, hospitals and other emergency facilities. When snow is clear from those areas, snowplows proceed to collector streets and school bus routes, residential streets and cul-de-sacs. Alleys are plowed last. Community members can help the city maintain safe travel routes during and immediately after snow events by: 

  • Staying home when possible
  • Not parking on snow routes
  • Keeping sidewalks adjoining or abutting their properties clear of snow and ice
