Why is it that I never seem to see a snowplow during a winter storm?

This department is responsible for snow removal on approximately 1,150 centerline miles of roadway and 130 bridges. The average time to complete a section is approximately 2 hours, but some cycle times can be as long as 3 hours. Time is also needed to load and reload the truck with de-icing materials.
