Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced late Tuesday that the temporary tractor trailer ban remains in effect on I-81, I-86/Route 17, I-87 from Albany to the Canadian border, I-88 and on all of the New York State Thruway.
With snow and sleet continuing to fall in many regions across the state, roadways remain hazardous and New Yorkers should avoid any unnecessary travel. Motorists are encouraged to drive carefully during the morning commute.
"I urge New Yorkers to continue to exercise caution and head out only if necessary - many parts of the state remain under storm warnings, and it is vital that our first-responders and emergency crews can clear the roads effectively and efficiently," Cuomo said.
