The District deployed a new Automated Vehicle Locator (AVL) system in time for this snow season. Now, you can see where DC snow plows, as well as contractors’ plows and rental plows have traveled throughout the city. The District map will show you where plows have been within the last 12 hours (these streets will appear blue) and where they were more than 12 hours ago (these streets will appear gray). You also can get weather information, key points about the snow/ice removal program, and DC traffic camera views.
