More than 120 total Public Works employees are competing in the 22nd annual Denver Public Works "Snow Road-eo" competition, testing the safety and driving skills of snow plow operators and loaders.

The top three teams from each division will advance to the regionals, held in Estes Park on September 22nd. Westword hit up the rodeo alongside DPW's Marketing and Communications Manager, Daelene Mix, to watch Denver's finest Public Works employees in action on this enormous obstacle course, set in the parking lot of the Denver Coliseum.
