CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WIVB) - State Police and plow drivers have been out in full force along the I-90 Wednesday night. Their preparation has kept travel disruptions to a minimum even with more than an inch of snow falling in some hours.
For some used to driving in the snow, it was a day like any other. For others, it was a different story.
"The snow itself is not going to block the road, that's not going to be our problem. If the road gets blocked, it will be because of a number of accidents," said NYS Police, Sgt. Gregory Peron.
