Snow Removal Route Map Goes Live on City of South Lake Tahoe Website


    Google+    

By: City of South Lake Tahoe

November 19, 2012 - The City of South Lake Tahoe successfully launched their "live" snow removal route interactive map on the City's website earlier this week. Snow plows were dispatched on city routes to test the GPS (Global Positioning System) system which displays snow removal activity and the map recorded and displayed their activity.

Updates to the "live" snow removal route map are provided as streets are plowed every eight (8), sixteen (16), and twenty-four (24) hours. GPS tracking units were installed to City snow removal vehicles last winter, however, technical issues prevented the system from going "live" until this fall due to overcoming issues do to the inconsistent phone signals in the basin. This week's trial run was viewed as a huge success when the map tracked and displayed the mock snow removal activity.

The Street Superintendent for the City of South Lake Tahoe would like to reminded residents to please park all vehicles out of the City Right-of-Ways when snow conditions exist. Also please place mail boxes and trash cans as far back off the roadway as possible. This will greatly enhance the speed and efficiency of the snow removal operations.

The snow removal route map can be accessed at www.cityofslt.us/snowremovalmap
