Mexico, N.Y. - The state DOT has opened up part of I-81 while barricading the rest.

State police say they have lifted the travel ban between Brewerton and Mexico.

DOT crews have placed barricades on I-81 as New York State implemented a "hard closure" on the highway from Mexico to the Canadian Border.

The State Thruway Authority has also closed more than 130-miles of the Thruway because of blizzard conditions. I-90 is closed from Exit 46, which is just south of Rochester, to the Pennsylvania border.

Officials say they have no timeline when they will re-open the two interstate highways.
