Motorists heading into downtown Buffalo on the northbound Skyway (Route 5) will face detours Saturday if they want to use the exit ramps to Pearl Street or the northbound Niagara Thruway (I-190), the State Department of Transportation reports.

Both ramps will be closed from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. for bridge deck repairs. Drivers will be directed to alternative routes.
