“Where’s My Snowplow” now available for Crow Wing County residents

(Brainerd, MN) — Crow Wing County residents now have the opportunity to view county snowplows on the county roads during winter snow events and will be able to track where plows are and where they are heading.
The “Where’s My Snowplow?” link uses GPS to track the 15 snowplows, which shows their current locations in near real time and updates every 5 minutes during snow events. Other features include the location of each vehicle that is currently in use and direction of travel and click or tap on the map to zoom in and move the map on the screen.
Crow Wing county crews plow around 550 centerline miles of county roadways and many require multiple passes because of the width of the roads. The First and Second Assessment District equal about 63 miles and the plowing is contracted out, and they will not be seen with the link.
