The plows will address main streets and drop deicing material as needed. Denver deployed 36 residential plows to local streets. Those residential plows will wrap up their shifts at 3 p.m.

The protected bike lanes will be plowed with a specialized plow that also carries liquid deicing material. The Department of Transportation & Infrastructure warns bicyclists that one-street bike lanes may become snow packed.

"The two (plows) that we have right now with nine miles of protected bike lanes in the city is enough to help maintain," said Heather Burke, a spokeswoman for DOTI.

Drivers can expect snow packed and slick roads with extreme cold temperatures overnight Tuesday that may impact Wednesday's morning commute.

DOTI urges drivers to allow for plenty of extra drive time and go slowly.
