SALAMANCA, N.Y. (WIVB)
If your Memorial Day weekend plans take you to Salamanca or the Allegany State Park areas you may want to take a route other than Route 219
The New York State DOT issued a travel advisory asking Erie County and northern Cattaraugus County motorists to avoid construction- related congestion for I-86.
The DOT suggests using westbound Route 242 between Ellicottville and Little Valley to southbound Route 353 into Salamanca. In Salamanca, motorists can then take Route 417 to Exit 20 on Interstate 86, near the Seneca Allegany Casino.
The state is installing a temporary message sign at the routes 219 and 242 intersection.
