Online snow plow tracker

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - V-DOT is trying out a new system that lets you check the progress of snow plows during winter storms.

It's only available in northern Virginia right now. It's like using Google maps, you click on your street to see if it's been plowed. It will then show you a color: green means your neighborhood is good to go, yellow means they are working on it, and blue means it's still covered in snow.

No word yet, on whether the system is coming to central Virginia.
