Route 5 closed due to winter storm

Route 5 was closed in both directions from Ridge Road to Interstate 190 Wednesday morning in the midst of a winter storm.

The closure includes the Skyway. A barrier was lowered across the entrance to the Skyway in downtown Buffalo early Wednesday.

The City of Buffalo and the Northtowns remain under a travel advisory, meaning avoid unnecessary driving, Wednesday morning. Tractor trailers and commercial buses are banned from many state routes, including the Thruway.
