Both the Municipality of Anchorage and State of Alaska have online maps that show their snow plowing priorities, and in the city's case, where plows have already passed through.

In Anchorage, the Municipality has started plowing "Plan A" streets first on Feb. 21 -- the city is broken up into areas on a three-day schedule, and Plans A and B alternate which areas get plowed first in a plow-out, with the third section often scheduled for plowing on Day 2. The city site notes that some area's plow days may be adjusted due to the garbage pickup schedule.

The map, which can be found here, shows which city areas have already been plowed, and which are underway.

The State of Alaska ranks roads from Priority 1 through 5, with 1 being high-volume highways, safety corridors and other major routes, to Level 5 being roads that are not maintained in the winter. Click the link above to see the state's map.
