PORT JEFFERSON, N.Y. —

Miles of a major highway on New York's Long Island will be closed Sunday as officials work to clear snow that left hundreds of cars stuck and trapped some drivers in their cars for hours.

The Suffolk County Police Department says the Long Island Expressway will be closed in both directions from exit 57 to exit 73, from about 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Those exits span about 30 miles.

Cars began getting stuck Friday afternoon as a blizzard bore down on the Northeast. Vehicles got backed up and couldn't pass one another, and mounds of plowed snow made it difficult for them to exit the highway.

Some drivers were trapped in their cars on the expressway and other Long Island roads until Saturday morning.
