Motorists found Fort Salonga Road in Northport all but impassable during the Friday evening rush as conditions deteriorated quickly once the blizzard bearing down on Long Island picked up intensity.
Vehicles spun out and stalled trying to go uphill westbound on 25A near Glibert St. The roadway was sloppy but passable for much of the day. But by 4 p.m. 25A was transformed into a parking lot.
Despite the struggles of several motorists, Northport Police said all roads were open.
