El Paso County Public Services reports that Priority 1 and 2 roads are 100 percent sanded and passable.
The sunshine is helping greatly and most roads will probably be bare by the end of the day, except in the shaded areas in the northern part of the county.
60 percent of Priority 3 roads have been sanded and crews will continue to work through them the rest of the day.
Crews worked with loader-mounted blowers this morning on gravel roads out east on areas re-drifted from last night's storm as well as cutting back drifts from the previous storm.
