The New York State Police reopened Long Island's major highways north
of Merrick Road/Montauk Highway on Tuesday after trees downed by
Hurricane Sandy prompted road closures.
The Southern State, Northern State, Meadowbrook, Wantagh,
Sagtikos/Sunken Meadow, Robert Moses, and Bethpage parkways were all
opened at noon, though they remain closed south of Merrick Road/Montauk
Ocean Parkway and Loop Parkway remain closed.
Downed trees still block many minor roadways in towns and villages across Long Island.
