Two days after Brookhaven Town highway crews started battling Sound Beach roads are still too unsafe for travel, according to the local civic group president.
Sound Beach has been hit particularly hard by the storm, and many of the roads in the area have yet to be plowed even as of Monday.
On Sunday afternoon, Patch asked readers if their roads had been cleared. Readers commented into Monday afternoon listing roads along the north shore they said had yet to be touched.
"Sound Beach (I can't say much about the rest of Brookhaven) is not being been well served during this storm," Civic President Bea Ruberto told Patch via email. "There are still many streets that haven't seen a snow plow and many that have are now single lanes."
A Meet the Candidates night for the Town of Brookhaven Highway Superintendent, set to be hosted by the civic Monday, has been cancelled. The meeting, which was to be held at the Sound Beach Fire House, was supposed to be attended by candidates Assemblyman Daniel Losquadro and Councilwoman Kathleen Walsh.
The area has many narrow, hilly streets, which have been hard to get to and maintain with the sheer amount of snow this storm brought.
"I've heard that partly this is because of the narrow streets in our area and the fact that many of the smaller vehicles can't handle this much snow," Ruberto said. "However, whereas in the past often trucks would start shoveling early on during a storm, this wasn't the case now. Most areas didn't see any trucks the first night. Maybe, if they had started plowing right away, a little at a time, then even the smaller trucks would have worked."
