Patchogue Village’s Department of Public Works has plowed through the roads Friday and will be continuing work in the parking lots Saturday.

Patchogue Village trustee Joseph Keyes told Patch Friday afternoon that the plows all passed through around 6 a.m., and that the department is going through the process of heavily salting the streets.

While work will be continuing in the parking lots Saturday, all of them have available parking spots, Keyes said.

Patchogue Village Mayor Paul Pontieri said that around noon Friday there was a small amount of street flooding near Lombardi’s On The Bay on South Ocean Avenue from high water and high tide. Pontieri said it created a “slushy mess” but it should have drained out

Pontieri also advised that residents continue to keep their cars out of the roads as plows continue their work into Saturday.

“The streets are still going to be dangerous and very very slippery,” Pontieri said. “We are putting ice and sand down but that doesn’t stop a 2,500 pound car if it wants to go someplace.”
