Hundreds of bicyclists will be wheeling through Amherst Saturday as part of Ride for Roswell, which will force the closing of the both the north and south I-990 exit ramps to John James Audubon Parkway.
State Department of Transportation officials said those exits will be closed to traffic intermittently throughout the day to accommodate the community event, an annual fundraiser for Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Motorists who plan to travel on the I-990 are being advised to seek alternate routes. They also are being reminded that fines for speeding will be doubled if they occur in a work zone. Two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in a motorist having his or her driver’s license revoked.
Meanwhile, the on-ramps from John James Audubon Parkway to the I-990 are scheduled to remain open during the Ride for Roswell event.
