One lane of inbound Skyway to be closed Tuesday

One lane of the inbound side of the Buffalo Skyway (Route 5) is scheduled to be closed Tuesday and again on Dec. 29 while the state Department of Transportation installs a new fence, officials announced Monday

The right lane of the inbound – eastbound – side of the Skyway near Interstate 190 is slated to be closed to traffic starting at 9 a.m. Tuesday and should be reopened by 6 a.m.

The Dec. 29 fence work will require the lane to be closed again, this time from 9 a.m. that day until as late as 4 a.m. Dec. 30.

The work may be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather.

The DOT reminded drivers that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone and convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver’s license.
