BATH - Emergency Service officials recommend no unnecessary travel and use extreme caution while traveling if needed.
Tim Marshall, director of the Steuben County Office of Emergency Services, asked drivers to use caution on higher elevated highways and bridges and to call ahead and make sure the destination is open.
If people don’t have to travel please stay at home, Marshall said. This is not a travel ban.
Marshall said the travel advisory will allow plow crews time to sand and clear roads and allow better access for commuters.
Freezing rain and sleet Sunday made conditions dangerous, Marshall said, Primary and secondary roadways are ice covered and treacherous. No unnecessary travel is requested until further notice.
Steadier snow was expected late Sunday afternoon into the evening hours, Marshall said. Steady snow Sunday afternoon into the evening hours will continue to create hazardous driving conditions at times as well as power outages..
