In anticipation of the first home preseason games of the 2014-15 season, the Buffalo Sabres are reminding fans about the limited traffic patterns surrounding First Niagara Center due to the construction of HARBORCENTER.
The following street restrictions are in effect until further notice:
•Washington Street (between Scott and Perry streets) is closed to traffic in both directions.
•Scott Street (between Washington and Main streets) is closed to traffic in both directions.
•Main Street (between Scott and Perry streets) is closed to traffic in both directions.
•South Park Avenue is open eastbound only (between Main and Illinois streets).
All normal event parking - in both the arena ramp and the surrounding surface lots - will remain open.
Fans who plan on visiting First Niagara Center while the limited traffic routes are in effect should plan on using Michigan Avenue instead of Washington Street. It is strongly suggested fans plan ahead and leave extra time for traveling to and from the arena.
During First Niagara Center events, the Buffalo Police Department traffic division will control all affected intersections and will direct traffic accordingly.
