Drivers traveling between Grand Island and Niagara Falls on the Interstate-190 this weekend will face lane reductions due to construction.
The North Grand Island Bridge span that normally carries southbound traffic will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday through 9 a.m. Sunday, the state Thruway Authority said
There will be one lane of travel in each direction over the northbound span, and drivers should expect delays during peak travel times, the authority said.
The entrance ramp from Buffalo Avenue and the Niagara Scenic Parkway (exit 21) to the I-190 South also will be closed during that time. Drivers looking to head south on the I-190 will be detoured to the Porter Road/Packard Road entrance (exit 23).
The construction is part of the project to establish a cashless tolling system over Grand Island. The project at the two former toll booth sites on Grand Island and in the Town of Tonawanda is expected to be completed by the end June.
