We have seen a couple of New York State Thruway rest areas reopen but that may be all for a while. It looks as if the project to revamp and rebuild the twenty-seven Thruway rest areas is significantly delayed.
The major snowstorm hitting the western and northern parts of New York is closing a number of roads to commercial traffic including the Thruway and Interstate 81. Other drivers may want to avoid driving if at all possible too. Especially in the hardest-hit areas of the state.
