Governor Andrew Cuomo has issued a temporary travel ban for large commercial trucks on interstates in the Syracuse-Binghamton-Rochester areas, as heavy bands of snow continue to make driving difficult.

The New York State Thruway Authority is also implementing a temporary travel ban for all tractor trailers, including tandem-trailers, on I-90 between exit 33 in Westmoreland and exit 48 in Batavia

The New York State Department of Transportation is banning tractor trailers on the following highways:

· I-81 from Exit 31/Bartel Road in Brewerton, Onondaga County, to Exit 6/I-88 in the town of Chenango, Broome County

· I-690 in Syracuse from the NYS Thruway to I-81

· I-390 from Exit 12/NYS Thruway in Rochester to I-86 in the town of Avoca, Steuben County

The bans will be in effect until 6:00 Thursday morning.
