Declaration of Snow Emergency / Travel Advisory

FULTON NY – The City of Fulton has declared a SNOW EMERGENCY effective at 3 p.m. today (March 12, 2014).

Snow and gusting winds along with a forecast of significant snowfall this evening have created very hazardous driving conditions.

Motorists are advised against any unnecessary travel. Vehicles will be towed if they become stuck or if they present a hazard.

Public Works crews are aggressively working to clear streets.

Due to the SNOW EMERGENCY, cars should not be parked on the roadway.

This will assist Public Works crews in clearing the snowfall which began to accumulate earlier this afternoon.

Pedestrians should stay off the roadways if sidewalks become impassable as road surfaces are treacherous.

The following areas may be used by residents for SNOW EMERGENCY PARKING – those areas include Indian Point Landing (North First Street, off of Route 481 at the north city line) and Bullhead Point (Route 3 West between the War Memorial and YMCA)
