The Mason County Road Commission announces the launch of Snowpaths
The Mason County Road Commission (MCRC) is excited to announce the launch of Snowpaths, an online interactive map service that will keep you informed of the snow removal process on roads maintained by MCRC for the 2020-21 winter season. The official launch date for Snowpaths is Monday November 9, 2020.
MCRC believes that providing Snowpaths will allow residents and public agencies to safely plan their commute by seeing current status of plowing operations. Additionally, they will be able to isolate a specified location to view the status of that road during a snow and ice event, as well as a complete overview of the entire area to map out their commute. Residents will also have access to customized alerts to stay informed of critical information during snow and ice events.
MCRC will evaluate Snowpaths at the end of the season for effectiveness, increased snow removal efficiency and public usage and feedback. If MCRC continues Snowpaths in the future we plan on working with the software engineers to track the brine application processes and showing road closures that are either due to construction or major storm events.
