TOWSON, MD—Baltimore County has launched a new tool to help residents stay on top of the weather.
During an active winter weather event, the new Snow Route Status application will display information regarding the salting/plowing status of snow routes in Baltimore County.
The status of each snow route is represented by the following:
Red – Salting and plowing not started
Yellow – Crews at work
Green – Operations complete
Gray – No County salting or plowing service
Approximate plowing times vary by snowfall event, according to Baltimore County officials.
During a snowfall of less than 6 inches, they say it takes around 24 hours for crews to plow all Baltimore County roads. During a snowfall more than 6 inches, it takes 48 hours for crews to plow all county roads. During a very heavy snowfall, the plows will concentrate on clearing the main roads.
Baltimore County does not plow or salt state roads, private roads, or alleys.
