Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that tractor trailers and commercial buses are banned from certain highways as of 8 p.m. Tuesday (1/29) and on portions of the Interstate 81 corridor beginning Wednesday at noon.

This comes as heavy snows and frigid temperatures are expected to impact several parts of the state through the rest of the week.

Beginning at 8 p.m. Tuesday, tractor trailers and commercial buses will be banned from the New York State Thruway from Exit 46 (Rochester I-390) to the Pennsylvania border as well as Interstate 190, Interstate 290, State Route 400, U.S. Route 219 from Peters Road to Interstate 90; and State Route 5 from State Route 179 to I-190.

Beginning at noon Wednesday, tractor trailers and commercial buses will be banned on Interstate 81 from the Canadian Border to State Route 104 in Mexico.
