What's New in the Special Areas?
SPECIAL AREAS HAS AN APP!
The Special Areas Board now offers an app to iPad and iPhone users. The app shows current local weather status as well as where recent snoplow activity has taken place in rural roads. We are very excited to have this app available for free on the iTunes App store and can be downloaded by searching for "Special Areas" or by following the provided link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/special-areas/id797758500?ls=1&mt=8
ALSO, we’re offering the same information that our iOS app has on the www.sabmaps.com website. This site requires a Silverlight capable browser.
