Roosevelt Island Roads And Streets May Freeze Over From Today's Snowstorm, RIOC Advises To Drive And Walk Very Carefully - Also, Tram Station Elevator Currently Out Of Service

The weather is cold and nasty outside today. The Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) advises:

The National Weather Service is calling for 1 to 4 inches of snow for the NYC Metropolitan area today. With temperatures below freezing, the roads may freeze over rather quickly. Please take every precaution while driving and walking about. It would be prudent to drive at a much slower rate of speed while allowing for ample distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. Please pay particular attention when approaching pedestrian and school crossings. Have a safe day.
RIOC also advises that:
Please be advised that the Manhattan Tram Station elevator and wheelchair lift are currently out of service. An advisory will be sent out once they are back in service.
Be careful out there.
