A real-time plow update during last year’s winter storm Juno

With winter storm Jonas preparing to dump a foot of snow on us, many of you are probably wondering if you’ll be trapped behind a blizzard barricade tomorrow. Have no fear because once the streets are blanketed in at least two inches of the white stuff, the Department of Sanitation will send out 579 salt spreaders and 1,650 plows, and you can even track the work that’s being done on their site with a handy interactive map called PlowNYC.

The map shows all five boroughs with color-coded streets based on priority: red for primary, blue for secondary and yellow for tertiary. Green streets are not plowed by the Department of Sanitation. And once the storm gets going, you can click on the “snow vehicle activity” layer to track in real time when your street is expected to get plowed.

Access the map here to see how your streets are faring.
