Skyway and Rt. 5 re-open

Road closed

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Winter weather conditions closed a major roadway in Western New York for about an hour Tuesday afternoon.

The Skyway and a portion of Route 5 were closed due to wind and blowing snow, but both have since re-opened.

And an accident that closed the ramp from I-190 North to I-290 East has been cleared away. The ramp has also re-opened.

Drivers also had to deal with slick roads and blowing snow Tuesday morning. There were several crashes around the region. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
