When ice and snow hit the region, Winter Operations keeps Cincinnati moving safely by plowing, de-icing, and treating the streets. During winter weather events, the Department of Public Services (DPS) uses professional weather service data, road condition information, and GPS tracking software to maximize all available resources and develop an optimized operations plan for each storm.
DPS relies on snow priority routes to effectively triage street treatment-- primary routes, such as hills, bridges, main thoroughfares and the downtown business district, are typically treated first. During a Winter Weather Event the interactive map above shows (1) where snow vehicles have already been; (2) when a vehicle was on a particular street; and (3) the distance covered by snow vehicles since the start of the winter weather event. The interactive Snow Routes map shows priority routes for treatment during a winter event.
