Last Exit Opens On NYS Thruway

The state Thruway Authority says the entire length of the interstate is open, after snow from last week's lake-effect storm in the Buffalo area was removed.

More than 80 snowbound vehicles were towed from the highway to three lots. Drivers can find out where to pick up their vehicles at the Thruway website (www.thruway.ny.gov ).

During the storm that dumped up to 7 feet of snow on towns south of Buffalo, a 132-mile stretch of Thruway was closed, from Rochester to the Pennsylvania line. More than 150 vehicles, including many tractor-trailers and several buses, were stranded.

The last closed exit was opened Sunday, and all service plazas were open.
