Members of the New York State Thruway Authority and the Department of Transportation met recently with local lawmakers to discuss what measures they are taking to be better prepared in a weather event similar to the lake-effect snowstorm last November.

Several weeks following the “Snowvember” storm, the Thruway Authority announced it was putting together a list of recommendations to improve operations and make sure certain efficacies are in place. On Thursday, the Authority, DOT and municipalities that were impacted compiled those recommendations into a report.  

“While the November storm did not have as big of an impact in Niagara County as it did in Erie County, it’s important to hash out all setbacks and hiccups, so we can better prepare ourselves in the future,” said state Sen. Rob Ortt, R-North Tonawanda. “After this meeting with everyone, I am confident they will be able to better identify the things that worked well and improve upon the things that didn't."

The Authority discussed taking a more proactive approach to closing the Thruway in any inclement weather.
