New York State bans empty trucks from multiple roadways


Ahead of a winter weather storm, New York State transportation officials have banned some types of commercial vehicles from certain roadways on Tuesday.

The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) issued a commercial vehicle travel ban for “Empty Trucks/Trailers and all Tandem Trucks” on certain routes throughout Western New York, Central New York, and the North Country.

The travel ban was issued due to a multi-hazard storm and extreme high winds in excess of 70 m.p.h.

See the current travel ban information below:

  • Western NY: Beginning @ 10 a.m. (1/9): Buffalo Skyway (NY 5), US 219, NY 400, I-190 (Niagara County: North Grand Island Bridge to Lewiston/Queenston Bridge), I-290, I-990 Kensington Expressway (NY 33), & I-86 (Chautauqua/ Cattaraugus CO only)
