UTICA, N.Y. -- The Mohawk Valley is getting help from Long Island during this snow event.

A total of 5 large plow trucks, 10 operators, and 2 supervisors made the trip north to help.

The crews from downstate will work in conjunction with local crews.

Plan A is to have them work Route 12 north of Utica all the way up to Alder Creek.

Whether they're from Long Island or Utica, the same safety rules apply.

“If you see a plow truck, give them room. They’re bigger pieces of equipment. They’re loaded, they're heavy. We always say the best place to be is behind the plow truck but just give them some room to operate and make the road safer for all of us,” said Nick Choubah, the NYSDOT regional director.

The Long Island team arrived Monday and no date is set for when they depart.
