NDOT announces Snow Plow Tracker

LINCOLN — The Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) wants drivers to know there now is another resource during winter events to view road conditions.  

Thanks to NDOT’s online Plow Tracker, drivers will be able to get a view of the roadway from plows actively working to remove snow going online at: https://plows.nebraska.gov/index.html.

This system works as a complement to the Nebraska 511 system, which informs travelers of road conditions throughout the State.  Motorists will have access to additional information to help them make informed decisions prior to traveling.

Plow Tracker shows NDOT plow trucks on the highway through an interactive map.  In addition, motorists will be able to view the roadway from the plow driver’s perspective through forward-facing dashboard cameras.  Plow Tracker automatically refreshes information every minute, providing timely information regarding our snow removal operations.  Plow trucks will be visible when on NDOT- maintained snow removal routes as designated by a blue line.  Roads without the blue line are the jurisdiction of county or local entities for snow removal.
