Traffic Advisory: Thruway Authority Announces Brief Traffic Stop On I-90 Near Interchange 56
The New York State Thruway Authority has announced that a brief traffic stop will take place eastbound, near Interchange 56 (Blasdell), at milepost 433, while crews remove an overhead sign that sustained damage from an accident last night. New York State Police will conduct the brief traffic stop at around 7:00 p.m. this evening. The stop is expected to last about 20 minutes.
State Police, Authority Maintenance and Construction Crews will be on the scene and the eastbound lanes will be reopened as soon as conditions safely permit. Motorists may wish to consider alternate route during this time.
The Authority will activate its Variable Message Signs (VMS), Highway Advisory Radio (HAR) and issue a TRANSalert to subscribers advising motorists of the lane closures and resulting delays.
The Authority appreciates motorists' patience during this time.
