MOUNT PLEASANT, N.Y. – Daily Voice readers traveling north on the Sprain Brook and Taconic State parkways in Westchester County report that the highways have high traffic volume and hazardous conditions as snow falls from the nor'easter.
Kieran O'Leary, spokesman with the Westchester County Police Department, released a statement Wednesday saying conditions on the Saw Mill and other parkways are deteriorating due to the snow and cold temperatures. The roadways are icy and there are multiple accidents, all minor so far. The statement are urged motorists to use extreme caution through the remainder of the rush hour because of the road conditions.
"I've been on Saw Mill Parkway and now the Taconic for more than 90 minutes from Tarrytown, and traffic is hardly moving," Yorktown resident Keanna Maltzman said. "It is very slow-moving."
Steve Schiavone of North Salem was headed home on the northbound Sprain Brook Parkway. Schiavone said power was off at his home and he was hoping to get home to his family as soon as possible.
Daily Voice staff members report that the Hutchinson River Parkway through Mount Vernon is also backed up as rush hour collides with the storm.
