What Roads Are Not Plowed in Miller Place-Rocky Point?

Help us create a list for the community on what roads still need to be plowed.

It's day two after a blizzard shrouded the Miller Place-Rocky Point area in more than two feet, and one question continues ring out from frustrated locals: Where are the plows?

Brookhaven Town on Saturday opened a portal on its website where folks could report unplowed roads.

Officials in other towns have said the volume of snow, and the many abandoned cars on the major roadways, has slowed down plowing efforts. Some community members have reached out to Patch and said their roads still are not plowed as late as Sunday.

Annmarie Field of Sound Beach wrote in an email to Patch that Port Jeff and Shoreham Road in Sound Beach are still not plowed.

"This WHOLE neighborhood is STILL snowed in! The Town of Brookhaven is NOT giving them any answers as to WHEN they can expect to get out & the snow is getting harder & more difficult to plow!," she wrote. "My Nephew has two children & now has NO heat. They are freezing and cannot do anything about it until someone can get in and fix it! Shame on the Town of Brookhaven for leaving their residents stranded...This is becoming a dangerous situation!"

On Facebook, Kathy Brindley asked Sunday morning, "Has anyone in MP or SB had their road plowed yet? Looking for a little hope here......"

Ellen Benedetto responded, "nope Im in the "Hollow" in M Pl nothing but the neighbor with a Bobcat."

At Patch, we'd like you to help us create a list of what's plowed and not plowed in town so far. Just add a comment below with the name of your street and whether it is plowed or not. Send this link to people you know so we can create a comprehensive list. We will be forwarding this link to the town, as well.

Considering the amount of snow, the endless hills and parked cars in the roads, TOB did an EXCELLENT job of snow plowing. Here, only a week later, all roads are open, all idiots are back, parking in the streets cuz most houses have two or more families in them to afford our taxes to pay for our inferior educators. TOB does not have the equipment to overnight create a miracle on our the roads. You dont like it...MOVE! But we need to HIRE a highway superintendent and get rid of it being a political friend debt candidate. Wake up people!..you are spoiled!

Ted In 1996 TOB had much more sub contractors @ their disposal. If I'd guess +50% less. Increased required insurance and lack of work drove them away. It bit the politicians in the ass! Prior to this blizzard they would call us in to salt for a few hours to cover expenses. This has changed! Do your self a favor and ask the candidates what their intention of is keeping sub contractors to bail out the hwy dept in a need as of this past storm. First hand as a sub I assure you that we are dropping at an enormous rate.

Just as much snow? I don't think so, more like only 1/2 to 2/3 as much based on this weather service map: http://www1.ncdc.noaa.gov/pub/data/cmb/images/snow/nesis/19960106-19960108-11.78.jpg
