INDOT Plows Ahead with Upgraded Tech

(Indianapolis, IN) - While state plow drivers are out battling the first snowstorm of 2022, they are now able to take us along for the ride, virtually. The Indiana Department of Transportation has added a new level of transparency to its snow plowing efforts.


Introducing: Plow Cam!


INDOT has attached cameras to some of their plow trucks which can stream live pictures of snow conditions on Hoosier roadways. Views from stationary cameras along some highways are also viewable online. So instead of relying on verbal descriptions, people can get a visual of road conditions before setting out on a trip.


Those cameras can be viewed via INDOT’s Trafficwise website at 511in.org.


INDOT plows were out in full force before noon Saturday. The weekend Winter Weather Advisory for LaPorte County and surrounding areas ends Sunday morning at 6:00 a.m. Up to eight inches of snow is predicted.
