Which Roads Are or Aren't Plowed in the Town of East Hampton?

Help us create a list for the community of which roads are cleared, and which are hazardous.

It's day two after a blizzard shrouded East Hampton Town in snow, and one question continues to ring out for some frustrated locals: Where are the plows?

If you are in East Hampton Village, Amagansett, Montauk, Springs, or Wainscott, we want to know what your block is like. Covered in snow — or plowed and sanded?

East Hampton Town Highway Superintendent Stephen Lynch but we have to remember there are other municipalities responsibility for plowing certain roads — the county, state, and village highway departments. 

Officials in other towns have said the volume of snow, and the many abandoned cars on the major roadways, has slowed down plowing efforts. Suffolk County police said that motorists who had to abandon their vehicles on the Long Island Expressway during the snowstorm are advised to call 631-904-3050.

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.

Church lane is plowed. We were driving around this morning and the roads seem to be pretty good. I did however see a bunch of mailboxes down. Mine is still standing but other residents in my area weren't so lucky. Not saying the town workers didn't do a good job, and they worked their butts off around the clock. Glad our roads are safe

I traveled to Hampton Bays today and the roads were great! Everyone that worked hard to keep roads clear did a awesome job!

I heard the main roads were in pretty good shape. My niece went to work in Noyac today by way of 114 and said the road was fine.

Everywhere I've been today in East Hampton has been plowed ... great job for a major storm!

Via Twitter, @RStevensom said, "It seams to me that our crews here in EH did a great job!"

Hildreth Place is plowed... but I'm one of those unlucky ones with a broken mailbox. The "box" part is on my driveway about 10 feet from the post! Since it's plastic, not sure if it can be repaired or not.

Yeah,great job town of East Hampton, Boatheaders Lane has yet to be plowed or salted...Mr Lynch your comments yesterday were a lie! All of the roads surrounding Boatheaders haven't been plowed or sanded either. And 3 Mile Harbor is a mess too. You shouldn't tell us that everything has been plowed when it hasn't. Tell the truth.
Gail Simons February 10, 2013 at 10:33 PM
All of Montauk seems to be in great shape. We took a ride around today & everywhere we went was passable with no problems.

Oakview Highway isn't great... guess that road got forgotten too
Concerned Citizen February 11, 2013 at 12:44 PM
Great effort by all those that worked endless hours. I went down Oakview late yesterday and though it wasn't ideal, it had been plowed. You can't fault the crews when drifts come after they have made a pass. Not everyone is going to be happy, but by and far the roads are as well as can be expected. I am surprised they are as good as they are considering the personnel and budget cutbacks.. Great effort by the town under the circumstances.
Linda Williams February 11, 2013 at 01:00 PM
Well I just came down Oakview again this morning going slow (thankfully) and went right thru the intersection, thank goodness no one was coming. I got lucky this time but what about the next time? I guess someone forgot about entrance/exit where 3 mile Harbor meets Oakview
Linda Williams February 11, 2013 at 01:23 PM
Now there are 2 accidents on Springs Fireplace down in Springs....where is the salt/sand?

does anyone know of the conditions on mulfrd ave., barnes ave, and harbor st. off steven hands path? need access for "meals on wheels" tomorrow...

Everyone must realize that a storm of this magnitude creates a lot of problems, especially with ice underneath. Unless you have ever driven a plow vehicle you have no idea what a toll it plays on your body and nervous system. You are driving in blinding conditions, with no visibility, at times you don't even know if your on the road. You are constantly under mental and physical stress due to the need to be safe and careful, and protect the people of our town. Not to mention emergency services personnel. Please applaud our highway department and the numerous personnel that give their all to clean-up after Mother Nature. A nice smile and wave to those of us that have to work endlessly, for countless hours for your welfare and safety goes a long way. Rich Sperber

The Highway department did an amazing job considering the conditions and length of this storm. We are far better off than most of the communities to our west that have far more resources than we do. The guys worked their tails off and did an incredible job. Thanks!!
Sharon Marie Buckler February 11, 2013 at 06:55 PM
Well said Rich Sperber! Thank you Steven Lynch and to the entire crew at East Hampton town. You have done an amazing job.
TRUTH NOT FICTION February 11, 2013 at 08:11 PM
The truth is LYING LYNCH AND HIS LYNCH MOB don't have a clue! Truth is he ran out of salt because he now salts every road including urban renewal and doesn't have the capacity to do so. Just another politician lying his way through a poor performance. We need Chris Russo back now!
Penny February 11, 2013 at 10:51 PM
I applaud Hwy Super Stephen Lynch & his crew...considering what they have to work with like...where to put the snow once it's plowed...they've done an amazing job in a short period of time. Someone will always complain, or make it political, no matter what you do. Being that this was a beyond the norm storm...they did a great job. The key is to slow down. The roads aren't dry. You have to expect to drive more carefully than you do on a normal winter day. We have to do OUR part as drivers too.

For the length of time most workers have been at the hwy dept, one would believe they know how to plow the roads in an efficient way. Why does patch need a map of what roads are plowed, can't the hwy dept figure it out? They better figure it out soon, more snow Thursday and Sunday! Maybe they need GPS so they can follow the dots:/ Drive carefully!
TRUTH NOT FICTION February 12, 2013 at 03:13 AM
Political motivated comments applauding a dismal performance 16" that's a joke I lived up state they don't even give a school delay for that amount. Where getting a snow job here
Kevin Cobb February 13, 2013 at 01:02 AM
Truth not fiction seems to be an oxymoron. We get fiction not truth. First you need to know what urban renewal roads are, then you need to know how they get done.It is up to the supervisor not the hwy superintedent.Your bitterness reminds of someone. Lets hear some more truths
Kevin Cobb February 13, 2013 at 01:18 AM
Lynch mob? Lets see who could they have Lynched???
TRUTH NOT FICTION February 13, 2013 at 01:20 AM
Please a job well done what 4 days latter your still working at it
TRUTH NOT FICTION February 13, 2013 at 01:21 AM
Please disprove any comments made
Evelyn p February 13, 2013 at 01:50 AM
Our hwy taxes went up by 18% (check your tax bill) and with more snow on the way, I hope EH Hwy workers are ready and willing to work. It was 12" of snow, and it was a mess up until Tuesday am. It is an election year after all.
