At 12:45 p.m., one eastbound and two westbound crashes had been reported, city spokeswoman Diana Klink stated. There were no injuries.

Suffolk Public Works began just before 10 a.m. treating bridges and the Route 58 Bypass with salt and abrasives, Klink said. They expected to be done by 3 p.m

Klink said the snow was not anticipated to accumulate on roads at a depth to warrant plowing, but crews were ready to respond if needed.
