Starting Wednesday, the Skyway will reopen, in both directions, for the winter.

Since April, drivers have had to navigate lane and ramp closures while the New York State Department of Transportation finished phase one of a bridge deck rehabilitation project. 

"The Buffalo Skyway provides a critical connection for commuters, tourists and businesses and these improvements will help ensure its continued operation for the next 20 years," Acting Commissioner Karas said.  "This investment strengthens our transportation network, supporting mobility, economic growth and prosperity in Western New York."

Phase 2 of the deck rehab will begin in the spring and is expected to be completed in 2020.
