NY lifts tractor trailer ban on I-87 from Albany to Canada

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the tractor-trailer ban for I-87 from Albany to Canada due to blizzard conditions has been lifted.

New York State implemented a travel ban for all tractor trailers, including tandem trailers on the full length of the following roadways:

  • I-87 between Albany and Canada (effective 1 p.m.)
  • I – 81
  • I – 84
  • I – 86/Route 17
  • I – 88
  • Thruway

“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.”
