Tractor Trailer Bans on the New York State Thruway, I-81, I-86/Rt. 17, I-87 North of Albany and I-88 Lifted Effective Immediately
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today lifted all travel and tractor trailer restrictions on roadways across New York State. The tractor trailer bans on the New York State Thruway, I-81, I-86/Rt. 17, I-87 from Albany to the Canadian border and I-88 will be lifted effective immediately. The Broome County travel ban has also been lifted. Last night, the Governor lifted the full travel ban and tractor trailer ban on I-84 between the Connecticut border and the Pennsylvania border.
“The tractor trailer bans we issued for impacted state roadways across New York State protected residents and allowed emergency teams to effectively respond to extreme weather conditions and safely work to clear roadways throughout the state,” Governor Cuomo said. “As crews continue to aggressively plow roads, I encourage motorists to stay home and allow these hard working men and women to do their jobs as best they can to ensure the safety of all New Yorkers.”
