Here's a list of roadway trouble spots that are expected to cause delays of up to 15 minutes in the week ahead:
I-290/Youngmann Highway (Town of Tonawanda): Repaving between the Elmwood/Delaware exit and the Niagara Falls Boulevard exit will cause lane restrictions and ramp closures. That segment of the 290 will be completely closed to traffic from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday.
Route 33/Kensington Expressway (Buffalo): Reconstruction of the outbound 33 from Elm Street to the Scajaquada Expressway is nearing completion, but motorists will encounter a few more restrictions. On Saturday, the ramp from the eastbound Scajaquada to the eastbound 33 will be closed from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Route 400 (East Aurora/Elma): Construction will cause lane restrictions along Route 400 from Route 16 to Pound Road from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Walden Avenue/Union Road (Cheektowaga): Driving is still tricky on Walden Avenue, from the Thruway to Nagle Drive,and on Union Road, from George Urban Boulevard to Como Park Boulevard, as reconstruction of the intersection continues.
Route 33/Genesee Street (Cheektowaga): Reconstruction of Genesee Street near the entrance to Buffalo Niagara International Airport continues. Two-way traffic will be maintained, but look for reduced lanes and congestion.
Route 5/Main Street (Buffalo): It will be another week of stop-and-go driving along Main Street between Bailey and Hertel avenues, with work concentrated between Kenmore Avenue and Allenhurst Road.
