WESTCHESTER, N.Y. – New York State Police have issued a special travel bulletin requesting motorists to avoid all unnecessary travel during the nor'easter, Athena.
In the notification police said, "Motorists are having difficult time navigating the snow covered roads that have become slippery. Visibility is very limited due to the wind-swept snow. All police agencies are being stretched thin, with multiple issues involving many cars off roadways, motorists stranded, tractor trailers stuck on hills in roadways, blocking traffic. All assets are being used by DOT's, tow agencies, fire and police agencies, the added traffic just continues to exacerbate the conditions adding to the dangers to all motorists."
State police are urging drivers to find a safe location and refrain from driving until highway crews are able to manage the roadways. The nor'easter is expected to last until after midnight with a snow accumulation of 3 to 6 inches and winds with 30 to 40 mph gusts.
Officials are hopeful that the roads will become more passable by daybreak Thursday.
