Fans attending Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals between the Sabres and Bruins may want to plan ahead before coming downtown.
The New York State Thruway Authority announced construction on I-190 southbound will interrupt traffic from Exit 14 (Ontario Street) to Exit 9 (Peace Bridge-Canada-Porter Avenue) throughout the weekend - including during Saturday's game at HSBC Arena.
Southbound lanes will be closed from 7 p.m. on Friday April 16, through 6 a.m. on Monday April 19.
According to NYSTA “motorists traveling southbound on I-190 must exit at Exit 14 (Ontario Street) and proceed south on Rte 266 – Niagara Street, where they will then reenter I-190 southbound at Exit 9 (Peace Bridge-Canada-Porter Avenue).”
Gametime is at 1 p.m. Fans should give themselves extra time while heading to the game to account for any subsequent delays.
