Why is it that I drive around Englewood or Denver and the roads are fine, yet it seems like Littleton gets plowed 2 days later? Is the city broke or they just dont think plowing major city streets is a critical city function.

I have noticed that the roads in Littleton are much better than the ones in Centennial. Broadway running down through Littleton is always in great shape. Then I turn onto Arapahoe and it is not very good at all. It just depends on where you are trying to go. I went down Santa Fe yesterday by Aspen Grove and it was awful. I don't go through Englewood/Denver regularly so I can't comment.

Some of the roads are also CDOT plowed, have nothing to do with Littleton. Sante Fe for example

That's why it is so hard to generalize with Englewood, Littleton, etc. since it is not all done by the city. BTW - the snowplow came down my little cul-de-sac in Centennial tonight so I can't complain too much.
