DPW crews prep for monster storm

Posted: Updated:

DPW crews across the Hudson Valley are preparing for the largest snowstorm of the season.



In White Plains, crews tell News 12 they are doing last-minute equipment checks, and have loaded many trucks with salt and sand and others with special brine to coat the roads.



DPW officials say they expect much quicker accumulation on the roads compared to last Friday's snow. They say that because of subzero temperatures the past three days, roads are much colder than they were last week, and snow will stick faster.



They are asking the public to stay off the roads as much as possible on Tuesday, and also add that motorists could create hazardous conditions by driving around plows. "Right now we are trying to line up the guys to work because it's going to be a long duration, as Brysen Van Eck said, 12 hours," says White Plains Commissioner of Public Works Richard Hope.
