Traffic lanes at the Thruway’s Williamsville toll barrier are operating on abbreviated service from now until June 12 to permit the replacement of damaged concrete pavement slabs. All work is taking place between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
The Thruway Authority said lane 2 for both eastbound and westbound traffic will remain closed for the duration of the projects. In addition, lanes 1 and 3 will be closed as a safety precaution during the actual work hours, but they will continue to be open between about 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.
The authority said the impact on traffic is expected to be “minimal,” and no major delays are foreseen. The work began Sunday.
