BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Construction has started on the Skyway in Buffalo.

The New York State Department of Transportation began installing netting beneath the Skyway Monday morning, and the work has reduced traffic to a single lane.

The netting is going up above Canalside.

For the next six weeks, the outbound (WB) lanes between the I-190 and Outer Harbor Dr. exit will have closures between 7am-3pm. The inbound (EB) lanes will have lane closures between 9am-5pm.
