Bridge maintenance to impact Amherst ramp


AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) – Drivers in Amherst may need to deal with a traffic detour Monday night.

Starting at 8 p.m Monday, the I-990 South ramp to the I-290 East will be closed to all traffic. It’ll stay closed until 6 a.m. Tuesday. This is because of planned bridge maintenance.

The I-290 East in the vicinity of the I-990 will be reduced to two lanes during that time. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
