City selects contractor for snow plowing in northwest Grid #1
Monday, December 10, 2012

The City of Colorado Springs announced today that Terracare Associates have been awarded a contract to perform snow removal in the northwest portion of Colorado Springs beginning today.  The area is Grid 1 in the City’s Streets Division’s 16-grid route plan, which is north and west of Garden of the Gods and I-25 to the city limits.                                                                                            

Terracare Associates will follow the City’s Snow and Ice Removal Priority Plan in this grid. The Priority Plan calls for primary routes (arterials) to be cleared first, followed by secondary routes (collector streets) once the primary routes are passable. Residential streets will only be treated if there is at least six inches of accumulation and only after primary and secondary routes are passable.

Citizens of living in this area should contact Terracare Associates directly regarding any snow plowing concerns.  They have set up a website at to accept snow/ice removal work orders.
