Maine Snow Fighters

At MaineDOT, we try to do our part to keep the roads safe. MaineDOT has a fleet of roughly 400 plow trucks that are used to control snow and ice on approximately 8,300 lane miles of Maine’s state roads. MaineDOT snow fighters are some of the most talented and dedicated professionals in the business. But even the best snow plow operators can only do so much to keep you safe when driving.

Stay Safe Around Snowplows

  • Give snowplows room to do their work. Plows are wide and can extend across the center line.
  • Don’t tailgate and don’t pass unless absolutely necessary and safe to do so. If you must pass, beware of the snow cloud created by plows.
  • Remember that the snow plow operators have a limited field of vision. Though you see the plow, our snow fighters might not see you. Keep your distance and always stay alert.

Meet some Maine Snow Fighters

  • We take great pride in the fact that Ryan Campbell, MaineDOT snowplow operator took first place at the XIII International Snowplow Championship in Quebec City and another MaineDOT employee, Joe Osgood, finished in the top ten.
