Southampton Town says it is aware that a number of private roadways are still not clear of snow after Friday night's blizzard, which dropped upward of 2 feet of snow in some areas of Long Island.
In a release to the media, the town is asking residents not to call, and said that highway crews are working around the clock to clear all roads.
"All resources are committed to the clearing, sanding and salting of roadways to ensure safety; however, town primary and secondary roads need to be addressed before private roads can be cleared," the statement reads.
There have also been reports of some snowplows getting stuck in drifts.
According to the town, most main arteries are clear and a state of emergency has been lifted as of 5 p.m. on Saturday, but many roads remain ice- and snow-covered. Many areas are also experiencing snowdrift. Southampton Village lifted its state of emergency at noon Saturday.
The town is requesting that motorists don't take to the roads if they don't need to — and if residents need to use the roadways, that they do so with care.
In an effort to help with snow removal, the state announced on Sunday morning that it is sending resources to Suffolk County, including 412 plow trucks and 731 operators.
The Long Island Expressway is shut in both directions from Exit 57/Nichols Road to Exit 73/Riverhead on Sunday for snow removal from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
