DETROIT (WXYZ) - When it snows, we all seem to wonder: Where are the snowplows? Wayne County has an answer to that. They've created a live map for you to track county road crews.
The live map shows trucks that are currently on the roads and it also allows you to view video.
Some trucks provide a live video feed and a listing of where they've traveled. Others provide only location information.
In addition to live video, recordings from earlier plowing also appear in some spots on the map.
A total of 99 routes are being plowed by Wayne County crews. They say they have 258 trucks available and ready to go.
At the nucleus of the operation at Wayne County Public Services is a command center in Romulus.
Employees there are able to see the routes salt trucks are currently taking and up-to-the-minute video of how bad the conditions are for drivers.
A spokesperson at Wayne County Public Services told 7 Action News several sites are stacked with tons of salt.
Trucks have been filled and ready for Thursday’s snow storm ever since the snowfall on Christmas Eve.
Thursday morning, crews were out early pretreating the roads in Wayne County to make it easier for plows to move through all day.
Wayne County Public Services has a website where residents can see the path of the roads that have been plowed and the path plows and salt trucks are taking.
