Traveling on Route 490 in Gates is a little easier now for residents. On Friday, DOT officials announced that the westbound ramp to Route 204 that had been closed for repairs since August.
Crews have been working since April on a restoration project replacing decks on bridges in the area including the decks on the I-490 bridge over Route 204.
During those repairs, drivers have been forced to use a medium crossover at exit 6.
However, that project is not yet complete. Officials say traffic will continue in a single lane through the work zone and the ramp from Route 33 eastbound to Route 490 westbound will remain closed through next week while a concrete barrier is removed.
