The Long Island Expressway reopened Monday morning after snow drifts left from Friday’s blizzard were cleared.

Eastbound exits 57 through 73 were closed to removed the massive snow drifts that trapped hundreds of cars on Friday.

Many drivers were trapped for hours–some even over night, after the snow accumulated at rapid rates.
