Dinolfo Urges Residents To Avoid Unnecessary Travel After 7PM

Dinolfo Urges Residents To Avoid Unnecessary Travel After 7PM

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo is urging residents to avoid unnecessary travel after 7 pm because of deteriorating road conditions and to give snow plows the opportunity to do their jobs.  Motorists should use additional caution if travel is necessary on Tuesday evening until further notice.

“Rates of snowfall and winds are expected to increase which will create challenges for motorists. I am urging residents to avoid unnecessary travel after 7 pm,” said Dinolfo. “The County’s Office of Emergency Management is monitoring the situation, is in contact with state, city, town, and village officials and will provide additional guidance as warranted.”

Rates of snowfall and winds are expected to increase in our area through the evening which would result in challenges due to blowing, drifting and whiteout conditions.

THE NO UNNECESSARY TRAVEL ADVISORY DOES NOT RESTRICT TRAVEL. It is, however, a warning to motorists that hazardous driving conditions will exist overnight.

The following two shelters remain open for residents who require shelter:

Brighton

Monroe Community College, Building 10 (Samuel Stabbins Athletic Building).
1000 East Henrietta Road, Rochester, NY 14623
   
Rochester
David Gantt Community Center
700 North Street, Rochester, NY 14605

Greece
Greece Community Center
3 Vince Tofany Blvd, Rochester, NY 14612

There is no need to call ahead but residents with special medical or transportation needs should call 9-1-1.
