A real-time plow update today

With close to 10 inches of snow already on the ground and more to come, Winter Storm Niko is certainly making getting around a challenge. But before taking a chance and entering that winter wonderland, check out the city’s handy interactive map called PlowNYC, which tracks the progress of the Department of Sanitation’s 2,300 salt spreaders and plows.

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.
