Crews in Orange County preparing for winter weather

Posted: Updated:

With wintry weather on the way for the Hudson Valley, road crews are getting ready in case the weather leaves roads snow-covered and slick.

Crews with Warwick's Department of Public Works say that road conditions could worsen and drivers should be cautious.

"Just get ready, make sure you have snow tires on, drive cautiously, and let the [road crews] do their job," says Ben Astorino.

Warwick DPW crews say that after going through Hurricane Irene, Tropical Storm Lee and the October nor'easter, they're ready for anything.
