Drivers in Buffalo will face two new obstacles Saturday – an eight-hour closure of an entrance ramp to the Skyway and a weeklong project on a section of the Scajaquada Expressway, the state Department of Transportation announced.

The ramp linking the southbound Niagara Thruway to the westbound Skyway will be closed from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday for bridge maintenance. Motorists will be detoured.

The Scajaquada will be reduced to a single lane in each direction for drainage work between Parkside Avenue and Delaware Avenue beginning at 7 a.m. Saturday. Lane closures are expected to remain in place until next weekend.
