Delayed opening on Monday for city facilities

Published on March 14, 2021

City facilities including the recreation centers will have a delayed opening of 10 a.m. on Monday, March 15 because of the snowstorm.

This delayed opening means that staff will be available by phone and remotely starting at 10 a.m. Monday because the Civic Center is not open to the public under public health protocols. Residents are encouraged to access online or remote services as the safest, most convenient options.

The city’s Winter Storm Operations page at Lakewood.org has been activated to provide updates. Information is also be available at Twitter.com/LakewoodColo, Twitter.com/LakewoodPDCO, and Facebook.com/LakewoodGov.

As of Sunday, March 14, city facilities including the recreation centers have been closed for the weekend, and those holding recreation reservations were notified ahead of time that the facilities would be closed over the weekend.

Given the current intensity of the storm, residents are strongly advised to stay off the roads. The city is currently on accident alert, and numerous traffic signals are covered in snow. Please remember that traffic signals that are inoperable or blocked by snow require extra caution: 

  • Treat any flashing RED signal as a STOP SIGN.
  • Treat any DARK signal (power out) or signal obstructed by snow as a STOP SIGN.
  • Before entering an intersection on green, YIELD TO approaching traffic that cannot stop.
  • Not all drivers know the rules. “Arrive Alive,” and drive defensively, even if you have the right of way.

City snowplow crews have been operating and will continue to do so throughout the storm to ensure the priority routes in the city are as clear as possible for traffic and emergency vehicles as outlined at Lakewood.org/SnowPlan
