Portion of Thruway closes to commercial traffic

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Commercial traffic on the westbound lanes of the Thruway west of Buffalo has been temporarily banned.

The notice came shortly before Noon on Friday. The reason for the ban is severe weather.

Later in the day, the westbound lanes closed from Exit 59 to Exit 61 due to an accident. They reopened around 4:30 p.m.

In the afternoon, travel was banned for commercial vehicles on I-90 EB between the Exit 57 and Exit 61.
