Winter Driving Tips

Plowing Operations: During periods of snow, Essex County Highways are out working to clear the corridor and salt/sand the roadway to ensure the safety of those travelling on the highways. As a reminder please be courteous and remain a safe distance back from maintenance equipment when you see blue flashing lights. To do the job right, snow plows and salt trucks must travel slower than regular traffic. Sight lines and visibility near a working snow plow are significantly reduced by blowing snow. Never pass a snow plow. It is extremely dangerous to pass either between or around snow plows because of whiteout conditions and the ridge of snow being passed between plows.
