city snowplow crews are working and focusing on priority routes in Lakewood,
which are arterial and major collector streets. The high rate of snowfall and
wind conditions will require the crews to continue to plow the priority routes,
which means other streets might not be plowed until later.
winds and wet snow could also cause snow to build up on traffic signals or
create power outages that result in obscured or dark traffic signals. Under
state law, motorists should treat any obscured or dark traffic signals as an
all-way stop. That means that traffic approaching an intersection from all
directions is required to stop before proceeding through the intersection.
should increase visibility to other drivers by turning on headlights.
