It’s snow laughing matter -- MDOT asks residents to help name snowplows
DETROIT – The Michigan Department of Transportation announced Sunday it will start naming its snowplows to add a personal touch to the Mi Drive map. To see each snowplow’s name, visit the Mi Drive map here and activate the MDOT snowplow tracker map layer. Current snowplow names were chosen from hundreds of suggestions and include Plowasaurus Rex, Winter Snowdier, Sir Salts-A-Lot, Snowboni and -- of course -- Plowy McPlowface. MDOT is hopeful to name each of the more than 250 MDOT plows statewide in the near future. Don’t get cold feet and submit your plow names here.
