El Paso County, CO, March 23, 2017 – All El Paso County administrative offices and county affiliated agencies including the Terry R. Harris Judicial Complex and the Offices of the 4-th Judicial District Attorney will delay opening to 10 a.m. Friday March 24, 2017.
A fast-moving storm is predicted late tonight into Friday with possible heavy accumulations and whiteout conditions in the northern parts of El Paso County along with a potential of 3 to 7 inches inside the City of Colorado Springs. Additionally, a High Wind Warning will be in effect throughout this period which is likely to cause drifting and icy conditions on county roads.
Residents are encouraged to allow extra time for travel in the morning and prepare for the possibility of severe winter weather conditions.
County Public Works staff, plow trucks and graders are on stand-by to respond. County policy is to plow priority 1 roads first. These are major thoroughfares with typically large volumes of traffic. Priority two roads, generally collector and connector routes are plowed and sanded next with neighborhood streets and cul-de-sacs as priority 3.
El Paso County Public Works is responsible for the maintenance of more than 2,100 miles of public roadway, ranging from major thoroughfares in urban areas to rural gravel roads and neighborhood streets and cul-de-sacs.
