THRUWAY AUTHORITY ANNOUNCES CONSTRUCTION ON I-290 EASTBOUND RAMP TO I-90 EASTBOUND

Detour will be in Place for Motorists until Summer 2016

The Thruway Authority today announced bridge deck work on the I-290 eastbound ramp to I-90 eastbound in Amherst beginning on Monday, March 14 at 9 a.m. A detour will be in place until summer 2016. 

All traffic seeking to access I-90 eastbound from I-290 eastbound will be detoured into a single lane onto Wehrle Drive, and then back onto the ramp, before entering the Thruway (I-90) eastbound. The work zone speed limit on the ramp will be 35 miles per hour.

The project will be completed in accordance with the requirements of Governor Cuomo’s Driver’s First Initiative, which prioritizes the convenience of motorists and ensures that disruptions are kept at a minimum for drivers at highway and bridge projects across the state.

The Thruway appreciates motorist’s patience during this scheduled work.
