Beginning Thursday, daily lane closures are scheduled to occur between 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Buffalo Avenue, between 63rd and 68th streets (both directions). During construction, at least one lane will remain open in both directions at all times. These lane closures will be in place daily for approximately five to seven weeks.
