Tarrytown crews out in full force to clear roadways
A steady mix of snow and sleet paralyzed lower Westchester County on Tuesday.
The combination made for very slick roadways and treacherous conditions.
Despite the hazardous conditions, the Tappan Zee Bridge never closed. There was a travel ban in effect for the Thruway prohibiting tractor-trailers.
In Tarrytown, nearly a dozen plow trucks worked on removing snow from the roadways. People were encouraged not to park on snow emergency roads.
Most of the main roads throughout Tarrytown were cleaned up, but side roads like Heritage Hill Road and Leroy Avenue were covered with patches of slushy snow Tuesday night.
DPW crews have already used 150 tons of salt in the storm, according to Tarrytown DPW Superintendent Howard Wessells.
"We're pretty much cleaned up," said Wessells.
