I-90 in Rochester closed in both directions

I-90 in Rochester closed in both directions

A more than 130-mile stretch of the Thruway in western New York has been closed in both directions because of blizzard conditions across the region.

The Thruway Authority says early Tuesday afternoon that Interstate 90 is closed from Exit 46 just south of Rochester to Exit 61 at Ripley, on the Pennsylvania border 60 miles southwest of Buffalo.

I-90 between Buffalo and Ripley has been closed since Monday night, but westbound traffic had been allowed to travel until late Tuesday morning as far as Exit 50 just east of Buffalo before having to exit the highway.

State police say all westbound traffic must now leave I-90 at Exit 46, where eastbound traffic is being allowed to enter the highway.

Travel advisories or bans are in effect across western New York.
