DGS joins DOT in snow preparedness event

Altoz TXR 660i

This November, DOT hosted a press conference with Mayor Pugh and multiple city agencies to update the public on the city-wide preparation for potential snow events this winter. At the event, Director Sharkey unveiled two Altoz TXR 660i’s, the newest additions to the city’s snow fleet. The 660i’s are small, easily maneuverable snow plows with the capacity to clear bike lanes and assist our Facilities Maintenance crews on the removal of snow around city buildings. Our Fleet Management Division has outfitted these vehicles with covers, salt spreaders, heaters, and emergency lights to ensure that snow removal will be safe and effective. The plows were well received and Baltimore’s bikers are excited as they now have the option to ride year round.
