Residents Will Have Increased Access to Data for Street Plowing Updates During Severe Snow Events 

Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski today announced a new, online tool for residents to monitor roads during severe snow events. The new Snow Route Status Map, will provide residents a simple, color-coded status of snow plow routes.

“The new online tool is another step in increasing government transparency and will improve the quality of experience we provide residents,” said County Executive Johnny Olszewski. “By providing this information more efficiently, we can help the public better understand where we are working and do more to keep the public safe during storms.”

During large snow events, County offices are often flooded with calls from residents requesting updates on street plowing status. With the new Snow Route Status Map, residents will have increased access to information regarding the salting and plowing of individual snow routes.

The status of each snow route is represented by the following:

  • Red—Salting and plowing not started
  • Yellow—Crews at work
  • Green—Operations complete
  • Gray—No County salting or plowing service available

The data for the Snow Route Status Map is provided by Baltimore County Department of Public Works crews who send in reports to supervisors, who then log their progress. Approximate plowing times vary by snowfall event.
