After staying closed since April, the Skyway is set to fully reopen for the winter on Wednesday.
The first phase of the bridge deck rehabilitation project is finishing up.
The next phase of work on the Skyway is set to begin next spring. The project will be finished in 2020.
“The Buffalo Skyway provides a critical connection for commuters, tourists and businesses and these improvements will help ensure its continued operation for the next 20 years,” NYS Department of Transportation Acting Commissioner Paul Karas said. “This investment strengthens our transportation network, supporting mobility, economic growth and prosperity in Western New York.”
Crews have been rehabilitating the concrete deck, replacing bridge joints and making repairs to steel.
