Additionally, the two center lanes of North Meadow Street (northbound New York State Route 13) will be closed from the West Seneca Street intersection to 150-feet north of the West Buffalo Street intersection.

Traffic delays along Meadow Street should be expected from the intersection of Elmira Road to the intersection of West Court Street.

The left lane of North Meadow Street will be available for northbound traffic and traffic turning left onto West Buffalo Street. The right lane will be available for traffic turning right onto West Buffalo Street.

Westbound West Buffalo Street will be closed between North Meadow and Washington Streets to through-traffic, and traffic eastbound on West Buffalo Street should cross Meadow Street.
