Travel Advisory Update

Please be aware that the City of Lockport is calling for a travel advisory from 10pm Friday March 3, 2023 until 10am Saturday March 4, 2023 due to the continued weather conditions.  Our salters and plows are out, but driving conditions require caution.  The winter weather mix of sleet and snow create unpredictable and dangerous driving conditions.  We ask all travelers to proceed with caution, if travel is necessary.

  • Slow down. Speed limits are based on normal road and weather conditions, not winter road conditions.
  • Maintain at least three times the normal following distance on snow or ice.
  • Watch carefully for snow removal equipment and stay at least 200 feet behind snow plows.
  • Use extra caution on bridges, ramps, overpasses, and shaded areas as they tend to freeze first.
  • If your vehicle starts to slide, ease off the gas pedal or brakes. Steer into the direction of the skid until you have regained traction. Then straighten your vehicle.
