When winter ends, road construction season starts. News10NBC has learned that two bridges on 490 will be replaced and work begins next month.

Governor Cuomo says the bridge over Chili Center Coldwater Road, which is between the Paul Road and Buffalo Road exits will get fixed first. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Also, the entrance ramp from Chili Center Coldwater Road to I-490 eastbound will be closed. That construction is expected to wrap up in August.

The bridge over Route 204 near the airport will be repaired and the exit ramp from I-490 westbound to Route 204 will be closed. That project should be done sometime in November.
