The objective of the Route 1 Snow Plow Locator is to provide the public with real-time information regarding the location, speed and direction of plow trucks during inclement weather.  Plow trucks travel the highway based on specific plow routes.

Plow truck information is generated from the Automatic Vehicle Locator (AVL) in two-minute intervals when plow trucks are in service (depicted as green icons on the map).  Plow trucks not reporting AVL information (depicted as red icons on the map) are stopped for one or more of the following reasons:

  • Fueling or replenishing materials.
  • Temporary breakdowns
  • Spare trucks not in service
