PlowNYC: track the progress of DSNY spreader/plow vehicles and confirm the snow designation of City streets 

illumiNET Digital Marketig Agency

New York City’s Official PlowNYC Website. The purpose of this Website is to allow the public to: (1) track the progress of DSNY spreader/plow vehicles; and (2) confirm the snow designation of City streets (i.e., primary, secondary, tertiary, or non-DSNY) (collectively, “Data”). Please note that shaded areas on the map indicate locations in which new snow clearing designations are being used. In these areas, snow is no longer cleared according to “primary”, “secondary” and “tertiary” designations.This Data is provided for informational purposes only. To submit a formal service request to NYC, use 311. FOR EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE, CALL 911. For more information about how the City is responding to the storm, visit may find that weather conditions, construction projects, closures, or other events may cause actual conditions to differ from the Data. Moreover, the Data may contain inaccurate or incomplete information due to the passage of time, changing circumstances, sources used and the nature of collecting comprehensive information, any of which may lead to incorrect results. For example, streets that have a “Tertiary” designation may be plowed by non-GPS equipped vehicles operated by private vendors in severe weather conditions and, as a result, all of their collective plowing efforts will not be reflected on this site. Accordingly, you should exercise good judgment and common sense in your use of this Data.
