Westchester residents, road crews still digging out from weekend snowstorm

The sun may be shining, but residents and road crews are still trying to clean up the snowy mess.

The Department of Public Works crews remain on the job Monday even though most roads are in good shape. While they work on snow removal, residents are busy trying to dig their cars out from the mounds left behind by snowplows.

The commissioner of the Yonkers Public Works Department says crews are now trying to widen the roads to make it easier for cars to pass. He says the only complaints the department received about cleanup efforts were regarding driveway aprons being plowed in after residents shoveled. But he says it's a problem that is unavoidable.

Also in Yonkers, alternate side of the street parking is suspended until Wednesday.

As for residents in northern Westchester, area businesses are still trying to dig out from the storm. Some store parking lots still have mounds of snow that need to removed. Residents say for the most part the roads are in good shape making it not to bad to get around.
