The New York State Department of Transportation is advising motorists to expect the closure of eastbound State Route 5 (inbound Buffalo Skyway) from Interstate 190 to Church Street in the City of Buffalo from 9:30 a.m. until approximately 1 p.m. Friday, March 10. The inbound highway closure is necessary to accommodate the funeral service and procession for fallen Buffalo firefighter Jason Arno.
Motorists are urged to slow down and drive responsibly in work zones. Fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. Convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver license.
