With Monroe County under a Winter Storm Warning through 1 p.m. Friday, February 4, 2022, County Executive Adam Bello is urging residents to exercise caution on the roadways if travel is necessary and allow for extra commute time for the duration of the storm.

“With up to a foot of snow and possible hazardous travel conditions expected during this storm, I encourage residents to drive carefully, give themselves extra time to arrive at their destinations and avoid unnecessary travel,” said County Executive Bello. “The County’s Office of Emergency Management will monitor changing weather and road conditions throughout the storm and will provide additional guidance as warranted.”

The no unnecessary travel advisory does not restrict travel. It is, however, a warning to motorists that hazardous driving conditions are likely.
