The Virginia Department of Transportation has a new web tool that shows the status of plowing in northern Virginia neighborhoods.
Once it snows at least two inches, residents can find out the status of plowing in Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William county neighborhoods at http://novasnowplowing.virginia.gov.
Users will be able to find out whether crews are plowing, have plowed or have not started a particular snow map. Street-by-street progress is not shown.
Users can enter an address in northern Virginia to see a color-coded snow map that indicates the plowing status in that area.
Green indicates a neighborhood has been plowed. Yellow means plows are in progress in the neighborhood. Blue indicates plows have not yet started the neighborhood. Gray means the area is not maintained by VDOT.
VDOT is looking for suggestions from the public to make the site better.
