GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Greenburgh highway crews had to clear the roads once again Monday morning following a weekend that dumped more than a foot of snow on some parts of town.

On Friday, Department of Public Works employees were out by 6 a.m. battling ice that resulted from rain and freezing overnight temperatures, said Commissioner Victor Carosi. Despite having to deal with Friday's snow storm, Carosi said, Greenburgh is faring remarkably well.

"There were no significant problems at all for us," Carosi said of Friday's storm, which had crews working continuously through Friday night and until noon Saturday. "We count ourselves to be lucky that we were prepared and addressed the issues that came up during the storm."

No power outages were reported in Greenburgh or elsewhere in Westchester County on Friday, according to Con Edison. In advance of the storm, the utility mobilized hundreds of company crews and out-of-state personnel to respond to potential outages.

Additionally, the storm did not cause road closures or downed trees, Town Supervisor Paul Feiner reported Sunday evening. DPW crews spent all day Thursday laying down liquid salt to prepare the roads for the ice and snow, and Police Chief Joe DeCarlo alerted residents to travel only for an emergency.

While the ice is mostly clear, rain and fog could create problems through Monday evening, according to the National Weather Service. Fog could reduce roadway visibility to one to three miles, according to a Special Weather Statement issued for Westchester County.
