The sidewalks along the highway have been cleared. We know that a number of residents were concerned about the condition of these sidewalks over the weekend. Our crews will always work to clear sidewalks after taking care of the streets, which are the priority. Only sidewalks along the highway between downtown and Eldora were included in DDA maintenance programs. Property owners / tenants are responsible for clearing the sidewalks adjacent to their properties per Secction 11-1 of the Nederland Municipal Code.
