Sheriff Lansing Advises Caution in Travel Today

Friday, March 2, 2018

Tompkins County Sheriff Ken Lansing has issued a Travel Advisory, urging motorists to use caution in driving due to conditions from the current winter storm. He advises motorists to evaluate and limit driving to essential travel. This is not a road closure.

Roads are still slippery and wet in places, so residents are urged to use caution. Given the amount of wind that has occurred in some areas, there are areas with trees down; which can create hazardous conditions. Please slow down and give yourself extra time to reach your destination. Please evaluate the need to travel and use discretion, as needed.

Updates will be issued regarding any worsening conditions; however, Sheriff Lansing advises that, as of now, roads remain open, and motorists are urged to travel cautiously.
