Denver deploying plows on residential streets Wednesday

Residential plows will be active from 3 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, making single passes down the center of each side street.

DENVER — With significant snowfall in the forecast for Tuesday night into Wednesday, the Denver Department of Transportation (DOTI) said it will deploy both big plows and residential plows.

Large plows will be deployed along main roads when snow begins to accumulate. Residential plows will be active from 3 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, taking single passes down the center of each side street.

"The small plows do not bring streets to bare pavement but can be helpful in creating a path to the main streets and preventing deep ice ruts from forming," DOTI said.

DOTI also said residential plows do not carry any de-icing agents.

9NEWS meteorologist Chris Bianchi forecasts the snow will likely start falling in Denver area after 9 p.m., with snow steadily falling throughout the day on Wednesday.

9NEWS' team of meteorologists believes most of the Denver area will see between 3 and 6 inches of snow, with some higher totals likely along the Palmer Divide and the foothills west of Denver. 

Winter Storm Warnings, Winter Weather Advisories, Avalanche Warnings and Dense Fog Advisories have been issued across Colorado.
