The Long Island Railroad maintains a fleet of snow and ice-busting equipment designed to keep outdoor tracks clear of snow and ice during harsh winter weather. Officials added that track switches are being treated with anti-freeze, and switch heaters are being turned on to keep switches moving freely so trains can continue to be routed from one track to another.
Officials said customers may call 511, the New York State Travel Information line, for more information about possible changes to Long Island Rail Road service this weekend.
