Snow causing slow downs across Buffalo area

Shortly after 9 a.m., NFTA Metro tweeted that all buses are experiencing delays due to weather.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Many Western New Yorkers commuting to work or school Tuesday morning were met with delays due to weather and accidents.

Shortly after 9 a.m., NFTA Metro tweeted that all buses are experiencing delays due to weather.

Around the same time as the NFTA update, NIITEC Traffic Operations reported two accidents on Route 33. One accident, beyond Elm Street heading east has the left lanes closed. The second accident, on the 33 West beyond Humboldt Parkway has the center lane closed.

As of 8:24 a.m., a crash beyond the Transit Road Exit on Route 400 heading north closed the left lane until 8:51 a.m.

A multi-vehicle accident on the outbound Route 33 at Humboldt Parkway, near East Ferry Street, blocked the left lanes of the roadway Tuesday morning. Traffic was backed up to Best Street, according to WGRZ Traffic Tracker 2's Dave Cash. The accident was first reported at 6:24 a.m. and was clear by 7:27 a.m.

We don't know if weather was the cause of the crash, but roads have been snowy and slick due to the heavy overnight snow. No word yet on any injuries. This is a developing story and we will update it as we learn more information. 

The City of Buffalo is seeing about 5 to 6 inches of snow. A representative from the city tells 2 On Your Side as of 10 AM crews are transitioning from clearing  the main and secondary roads to working on the residential/side streets.

As of 7:06 a.m. NITTEC Traffic Operations also reported a crash at Exit 7 of the I-190 South (Skyway Exit). The right lane was closed for a short time, but the accident was cleared as of 7:22 a.m.
