What Roads Are Plowed in Hauppauge?

With the town being quiet on road updates, help us create a list for the community.

It's day two after a blizzard shrouded Smithtown in more than two feet, and one question continues ring out from frustrated locals: Where are the plows?

While Smithtown Patch was able to reach the town's public safety director John Valentine on Saturday, he was not able to give specific details on the state of the town's roads, and what is causing many neighborhood streets to go unplowed since Friday.

Multiple calls to town highway officials, meanwhile, went unanswered, and after 2 p.m. went straight to voicemail. The town also does not give updates on its websites, unlike nearby Brookhaven Town, which on Saturday opened a portal on its website where folks could report unplowed roads.

Officials in other towns have said the volume of snow, and the many abandoned cars on the major roadways, has slowed down plowing efforts.

Smithtown did post this message in its site at 6 p.m. on Saturday: "Town of Smithtown Highway and Parks Departments are working diligently to clear Smithtown roadways. Please be patient as there is a tremendous volume of snow to be removed from town roads. Please stay off town roads if at all possible."

In the interim, comments on this site and social media have overflowed, with many calling out the town for what they say is a poor response to the blizzard.

"I have lived in the Town of Smithtown for 39 years and I have always bragged about what a great job the Smithtown Hwy Dept does during snow storms. My bragging has ended with this storm. What happended this time? The lack of snow clearing is so unusual that it makes me think that some kind of drastic change in town policy is behind this. Can anyone in the Hwy Dept explain this?," Ted Kiladitis wrote.

At Patch, we'd like you to help us create a list of what's plowed and not plowed in town so far. Just add a comment below with the name of your street and whether it is plowed or not. Send this link to people you know so we can create a comprehensive list. We will be forwarding this link to the town, as well.

Does anyone know if the industrial park is plowed or the roads near there?

6:00 pm on Sunday Shandon Court finally plowed - two small plows, worked very hard and did a good job given the amount of snow.
