What are the road conditions like in New York? How do you know which roads in New York City have been plowed and salted? If you live in New York, then you’re likely to experience snow delays or cancellations from Winter Storm Niko. NYC residents will also want to keep track of snow plows when they’re getting ready to head back out on the roads. New York City closed all public schools on Thursday, ahead of the storm, and thousands of flights in the Northeast were cancelled in preparation. Six inches to a foot of snow is expected.
Here’s where you can find more information about snow plows in your area:
New York City has an official snow plow map that you can visit at this link. You’ll first have to click “continue” after reading the disclaimer. (If the tracker isn’t currently tracking any snow plows, you’ll see a pop-up that lets you know this.) The map has two legends at the bottom right, one for snow vehicle activity and one for snow removal designation, showing what’s primary, secondary, and tertiary. The colors on the map aren’t lighting up from far away. You’ll have to zoom into the map to see the snow vehicle activity. You can also click on any area on the map and a pop-up will appear telling you the time a snow vehicle last visited the area.
