Travel advisory issued for Wayne County, motorists encouraged to stay off roads tonight

Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts has issued a No Unnecessary Travel Advisory to take effect at 11 p.m. on Thursday November 15, 2018 in Wayne County. This travel advisory is issued as a result of the National Weather Service’s Winter Storm Warning. 

The No Unnecessary Travel Advisory is in effect until 6 a.m. Friday November 16, 2018.  This travel advisory does not restrict travel. It is, however, a warning to motorists that hazardous driving conditions may exist. 

Significant amounts of snow may fall throughout parts of Wayne County overnight that could make travel dangerous. Plow crews may not be on the road overnight, so road surfaces may see significant accumulations before plowing is resumed Friday morning.

The No Unnecessary Travel Advisory warning does not restrict travel. It is, however, a warning to motorists that hazardous driving conditions will exist overnight.

For the safety of all residents, the general public is encouraged to consider the need to be on the roads during these times and to use extreme caution while traveling in or around Wayne County.

This advisory is in cooperation and partnership with Wayne County’s Emergency Management Director George Bastedo and Highway Superintendent Kevin Rooney.
