As the snow falls, we want our community to be safe during this snowstorm.  Here is an update on Longmont City services:

Electric Services

As of 1:30pm, we have restored power to approximately 8,000 customers and are working on small or individual outages.

Where outages occurred, crews have been dispatched to restore power, typically within three hours. If you are experiencing an outage, please call our outage line at 303-776-0011. If you are having difficulty getting through, it may be due to high call volumes; please try calling again after waiting a few minutes. If your power is not restored within an hour, please call back.

Road Conditions

Roads in Longmont are open and plow crews are working hard to get ahead of the storm, but roads east and south of Longmont are closed.  You can check road closures on

Remember to treat signal outages as a four-way stop and if you have a fender bender, please trade insurance information. Only call police in case of serious injury or disabled vehicles blocking roadways.
