Montgomery's SnowMap provides plowing updates
Now, just in time for this winter's first storms, Montgomery officials are touting their new zoomable tool for residents, montgomerycountymd.gov/SnowMap.
It's a searchable, color-coded map with progress reports on plowing statuses and links to feeds from 200 traffic cameras. The system also accepts reports on missed streets and damaged mailboxes.
Officials said an opportunity for confusion remains, since the state is responsible for roads such as Georgia Avenue and Rockville Pike. So the system will also link to information from the Maryland State Highway Administration.
