Thruway Workers and Equipment Ready For Winter

The people who run the New York State Thruway System tells us they are up to the challenges that this winter will bring. Acting Syracuse Division Director Pat Hoehn tells us all the people and equipment are ready to go.

What's the biggest challenge?

Hoehn is also asking drivers to give the plows plenty of room to work.


State Police say , "Remember that a snowplow driver has a limited field of vision, so stay back at least 15 car lengths until you’re sure it is safe to pass or until the plow pulls off the road."

There are more than 600 Thruway employees who work on Thruway’s winter upkeep. They have some 200 large plow trucks with salt spreaders as well as smaller plow trucks, front-end loaders and large snowblowers to deal with what ever winter throws their way.
