Travel advisory in N. Falls, courts close

There is a travel advisory for the City of Niagara Falls in place, effective immediately. Mayor Paul Dyster is asking all motorists to avoid all unnecessary travel.

Rapid accumulation of snow is creating hazardous driving conditions. Dyster says street crews are out working on the roads, and the best thing to do is stay out of their way.

Dyster is asking drivers to observe alternate parking arrangements and to try and park off the streets, to facilitate plowing.

“If you don’t have a good reason to go out, staying at home not just helps guarantee your safety, but it also makes it easier for our city crews to do their jobs. We have a big clean up ahead of us here and the less vehicles we have on the streets the easier it is for our guys to do that,” he said.

Courts in Niagara County have closed, including Niagara County Courthouse, Lockport City Court, and Niagara County Supreme Court have been closed Wednesday night.
