Highway Super: We're Ready for More Snow

Workers will plow once the accumulation is more than 2 inches.

With a winter weather advisory issued for the area, the East Hampton Town Highway Department is gearing up for more snow, just days after a blizzard dropped a foot or so in East Hampton.

"Our trucks are all loaded and ready to go," said Highway Superintendent Stephen Lynch.

Workers will salt the roads ahead of the snow, which is expected to begin around 7 p.m., he said. He's going to "play it by ear" as to when to send out the troops to plow the roads.

"It depends on accumulation. We'll go out and salt right away. But, it depends on the temperature. If it doesn't get really cold and it doesn't snow super hard, salt could burn it off the roads," Lynch said. "And then when the sun comes out tomorrow we'll be able to push the slush off."

Workers start plowing when there's more than 2 inches of snow.

The forecast is calling for 2 to 5 inches. For more on the forecast, click here.
