Following Tuesday night's snow storm, snow removal operations continue across the metro and if you're wondering when snow plows will be in your neighborhood you can check with a simple click.
In Omaha, you can track snow plows via the city's website. Since last year, all snow plows in the city have been equipped with GPS tracking so residents can see the status of crew’s work.
Street Maintenance Engineer Austin Rowser says a map will show where snow cleanup has been done, where's it's currently plowing and what areas still wait to see the trucks and plows."We wanted to put that all together to where citizens could see trucks working. They can see status of their areas, status of the routes that they would use where ever they're going to get through their day."
The map is updated constantly and gives motorists better information so they can better navigate in wintry conditions. You can find the map on the city's website here.
The Nebraska Department of Transportation also has an online Plow Tracker that allows commuters to get a view of the roadway from plows actively working to remove snow going online.The Plow Tracker shows NDOT plow trucks on the highway through an interactive map and in addition, motorists will be able to view the roadway from the plow driver’s perspective through forward-facing dashboard cameras.
Plow Tracker automatically refreshes information every minute, providing timely information regarding our snow removal operations. Plow trucks will be visible when on NDOT-maintained snow removal routes as designated by a blue line. Roads without the blue line are the jurisdiction of county or local entities for snow removal. You can access the Plow Tracker here.
