Albany county executive advises safe travel during snow storm

ALBANY, N.Y. — County Executive Daniel P. McCoy is advising Albany residents to use caution while driving on the roads.

The County Department of Public Works has between 20-25 plow trucks among the seven subdivisions throughout the county. Plow drivers are scheduled and working 24-hour shifts for the winter season.

“This snow and extreme cold can be deadly,” said McCoy. “Drivers need to exercise extreme caution on the roadways and if you don't need to travel, we advise that you don't. If you do venture out, please remember to clear your car of snow for better visibility. Our team is experienced and they are doing a good job keeping the roads clear.”

Governor Andrew Cuomo has activated the State Emergency Operations Center to monitor the storm impacting the area.
