Bus stops covered with snow in Rockland County

Snow mounds created by plows are making it difficult for pedestrians and bus riders to get around. Many commuters in Rockland were forced to walk

NYACK - Snow mounds created by plows are making it difficult for pedestrians and bus riders to get around.

Many commuters in Rockland were forced to walk along busy Route 59 in Nanuet yesterday as they transferred buses.

Huge piles of snow covered the ground in front of many bus stops creating a slippery situation for riders. "It is very hard to get on and off the buses, and they are very hard to walk around. It's very dangerous to walk around and to get to the places you need to go to," says Beatrice Delvalle, of Spring valley.

Clarkstown highway officials say they're making progress, but it may take another day to clear all the sidewalks and bus shelters.
