Skyway re-opened after long closure

Buffalo City Hall Niagara Square WNY

The Skyway was re-opened Wednesday night after being closed for more than 10 hours.

Route 5 was closed in both directions Wednesday afternoon around 1 p.m. from Ridge Road to I-190, a four-mile stretch. Blowing snow was causing white-out conditions on the roadway and an accident took place at Furhmann Boulevard.

There were no details released about the crash, which was cleared up hours before the Skyway was re-opened around 11 p.m. on Wednesday.
