MDT Provides Snow Plow Camera Images

Posted: Updated:

The Montana Department of Transportation has a pilot project underway to provide motorists with another resource.

MDT is providing images directly from cameras mounted on snowplows driving the highways, during the winter.

There are a total of ten cameras located in various locations across the state, so the coverage will be limited to those locations.

The purpose of the project is to test the associated technology, determine value to MDT and ideally provide Montana travelers another resource for assessing road conditions.

"We need to provide information, it's a safety issue for people to make an informed decision. Montana is a vast and rural state, its critical for folks," said Brandi Hamilton from MDT.

The images are taken approximately every half mile and are available to view every 30-45 minutes. Images are available on the MDT's test traveler information map online.

You can provide feedback for the department by sending an email to mdtsnowplowcams@mt.gov.
