PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — People in Pittsburgh who wanted to use the city’s online Snow Plow Tracker may have noticed that the website was down for part of the night.
A message there said it had “been administratively disabled.”
However, just before 5 a.m., the site was back up and appeared to be running normally.

The site just relaunched late in January after being down for several months for upgrades.
Those upgrades include showing which trucks are actively plowing or spreading salt, enhanced vehicle capacity, personnel changes, a modified road salt mixture and more.
