Chicago’s Snow Plow Tracker Shows 100% Units Deployed


Chicago has deployed its full fleet of snow plows as a winter storm whipping across the region led to the cancellation of hundreds of flights at city airports.

The City of Chicago is currently implementing a 100% Snow Program which consists of 275 snow plows, 26 smaller four wheel drive plows. 60 garbage trucks equipped with quick-hitch plows have also been deployed to assist with snow removal, but are not displayed on the map. Trucks will be deployed to residential streets when the main routes are clear. Drivers from the Department of Transportation and Department of Water Management are available to supplement the Department of Streets and Sanitation workforce. All 19 salt stations are open.
