Why are the striping on the roads not reflective?

The striping on all Town roads is painted with reflective material. The Public Works Department uses a contractor to paint and place reflective beads on our road markings to follow Colorado Department of Transportation specifications. To ensure Town striping is effective, Public Works completes a nighttime inspection at the beginning of the winter season to confirm that its reflective nature will last through the cold weather. Another layer of reflective paint striping is applied to our roads in early spring.

The lifespan of pavement markings can vary based on traffic volumes and weather conditions. If you have a certain spot of concern, please send the location to the Public Works Department by email or by calling 720-733-2462. The team would be happy to look into this further for you.
