Blizzard Conditions, I-90 Closed (UPDATED)

by on December 22, 2008

Things are looking crazy out there

Police agencies across western New York are strongly urging people NOT to drive this Monday morning.

Travel advisories are in effect for all of Erie, Niagara and Genesee Counties.

The town of Wales is under a travel ban, which means drivers there can be ticketed if they’re caught out on the roads.

The Town and Village of Lancaster are also under a travel ban, as well as a state of emergency.

Many major roadways across the area are closed COMPLETELY this Monday morning because of the dangerous driving conditions.

The 90 is closed all the way from exit 46 in Henrietta to exit 61 at the Pennsylvania state line. The 90 is open from Williamsville tolls to Pennsylvania line.

A dangerous mix of low visibility caused by drifting snow and slippery road conditions sent dozens of vehicles skidding off the New York state thruway overnight.

  1. I was in my office (in the city) by 7:30. People who waited to go into work until, say, 11:00 are wusses. 🙂

    Seriously though, I came in from the north and the roads were mostly clear. The southtowns got slammed overnight. “skyway closed” = “be smart, stay home”
