Winter Storm Message from the NY State Thruway Authority

15 Dec 2020 5:47 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Attention Tandem Operators:

A winter storm is expected starting Wednesday evening, December 16, 2020 and continuing through Thursday afternoon from the Upper Hudson Valley south to New York City.   This event is expected to produce heavy snow with gusting winds resulting in hazardous driving conditions and poor visibility. Operators are strongly encouraged to avoid traveling in LCV/Tandem combination in the affected areas during this storm.

As a reminder, the Authority requires your cooperation in the following matters when using a LCV/Tandem Area:

  • Equipment Parking is limited to 12 hours only (except where noted).  Storage of Tandem equipment is not allowed for any extended period, including weekends and holidays.
  • All equipment (including dollies), must be removed from the LCV/Tandem Areas within 12 hours of a snow event.  This will greatly assist in the prompt removal of snow.

It is the driver’s responsibility to have all snow and ice removed from the roof of all their trailers.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter,

Office of Traffic Management

NYS Thruway Authority
