The detours that have frustrated drivers along the I-190 South are about to end.

The expressway is currently closed from Exit 15, Sheridan Drive/Kenmore Avenue, to the Peace Bridge at Busti Avenue, and this has made for heavy traffic along River Road and Niagara Street.

The detour will end on Monday morning at 6 AM.
