For those truckers doing business in the Town of Erie, please continue on with your business. Business is described as being in the immediate process of delivering or picking up materials or merchandise, providing services or reaching the final business destination in the Town.
The Town of Erie is rapidly growing and is surrounded by I-25 to the east, HWY 287 to the west, HWY 52 to the north and HWY 7 to the south. The interstate and the listed highways are made to handle trucks with or without loads of 13 Tons or more.
The roads going through the Town of Erie such as East County Line Road, County Road 3, County Road 5, County Road 7, Arapahoe Road and Erie Parkway to name a few, are simply not designed to withstand more than 13 Tons.
Signage has been and continues to be posted at the entrance of roads leading into and through Erie. Yes, some of the signs provide quick notice but the Town is not allowed to place them in other jurisdictions. What does this mean for a truck driver? For a truck driver not doing business in the Town of Erie, the driver should exit (right or left turn as appropriate) on the first road available. The Town has not and would never expect a truck driver to “back up or complete a U-turn”. This is simply unsafe.
According to Town Ordinance:
"Golf Cars shall be restricted to operation on streets and roadways within the Town of Erie which have a speed limit of Twenty-five miles per hour (25 mph) or less, and to operation on Mountain View Boulevard; except that a Golf Car may be operated to directly cross a roadway that has a speed limit greater than Twenty-five miles per hour (25 mph) at an at-grade crossing to continue traveling along a roadway with a speed limit equal to or less than Twenty-five miles per hour (25 mph). If the owner of the Golf Car resides at a street address where operation of a Golf Car is not allowed due to this speed restriction, the owner shall be allowed to drive the shortest route to and from the owner’s residence to a street where the Golf Car is allowed to operate."
The ordinance does not allow one to drive on streets that are greater than 25 mph except:
1. If you live on one that would otherwise not allow you to leave your house (because the limit is greater than 25 mph) or 2. on Mountain View Boulevard
BACKGROUND:During their August 24th meeting, the Board of Trustees approved an ordinance permitting the operation of Golf Cars on town streets modeled after a similar ordinance adopted by the Town of Bow Mar, Colorado. The ordinance applies to either electrical or gas powered Golf Cars, but is restricted to Golf Cars as defined by the State.
This ordinance is effective October 1, 2010.
“Golf Car”, as set forth in Colorado Revised Statutes § 42-1-102, means a self-propelled vehicle not designed primarily for operation on roadways and that has: at least three wheels in contact with the ground; an empty weight of not more than one thousand three hundred pounds; and a carrying capacity of not more than four persons.
Every Golf Car shall be equipped, at a minimum, with the following equipment: Front headlamps; front and rear turn signal lamps; rear tail lamps and stop lamps; a rear view mirror or mirrors; a parking brake; a front windshield; seat belts for each occupant; two rear reflectors as either part of the tail lamps or separately; and, a slow moving vehicle sign - as provided for by State law - shall be attached on the rear of the Golf Car.
The ordinance also includes but is not limited to the following:
• Operators must be 21 years of age or older with valid driver’s license
• Operators must have liability insurance
• Access restricted to streets which have a speed of 25 mph or less ** Exception: On streets where operation is not allowed due to this restriction, owners shall be allowed to drive the shortest route to and from owner’s residence to a street where the Golf Car is allowed.
• Golf cars are allowed on Mountain View Boulevard
• Prohibited use on Town paths or trails
• Child restraints per State Statutes
• A twenty-four month review of this ordinance
• Everyone operating a golf car shall be subject to all traffic laws
All sworn Police Officers of the Erie Police Department share the responsibility of responding to code enforcement complaints. In addition, the Town of Erie Building Inspector/Code Enforcement Officer is responsible for all building and zoning complaints and violations.
While the Erie Police Department appreciates the interest and support, they are unable to provide police patches due to security concerns.
Please note: The most dangerous street conditions may occur when the day has been warm enough to melt snow and ice and then the temperature drops in the afternoon refreezing the melted snow and ice.
Our goal in plowing residential streets is to keep as much snow as possible off the road. We do not plow down to the pavement. The quickest way to plow snow is to push it to the side. This may mean that you will have to clear your driveway.
To help our crews perform in a safe and efficient manner:• Exercise extreme care, your safety and the safety of other motorists and pedestrians is the highest priority • Travel at a safe distance from snowplows at all times • Do not try to pass snow removal vehicles • Park off-street if possible• Do not shovel snow from your sidewalk and drive-way into the street• Do not attempt to stop a snow removal vehicle or obstruct its path

Residential streets may be plowed if snow accumulation and weather conditions dictate. When snowstorms leave large accumulations that are expected to remain for several days, plows may move in to residential streets after completing service on primary and secondary streets.
When plowing residential streets the goal is to keep as much snow as possible off the road. We do not plow down to the pavement. The quickest way to plow snow is to push it to the side. This may mean that you will have to clear your driveway.
The Town uses large plow trucks for snow removal and light weight pickup trucks are used during heavy snow fall to assist in accessing residential streets. The Town also has heavy equipment that can be used for cutting ice in trouble areas and clearing specific intersections.
The Town also contracts with local snow removal vendors for assistance during large storms.
There are approximately 250 single lane miles of streets in Erie. Snow crews work in rotating shifts until the snow event has ended. It can take crews up to two hours to initially cover their assigned route.
Please keep in mind; crews put forth the utmost effort during snowstorms. Extended storms may present various challenges for our crews, for example, equipment breakdowns and abrupt changes in the weather.
